WEBINARS: Jews in Denmark, Shining A Light on Antisemitism
Ghetto Fighters' House: Voices in the Void
4, 2023 | 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET | Online
the 80th anniversary of the unique rescue mission in which more
than 7,000 Danish Jews – comprising approximately 95 percent of
Denmark’s Jewish population – were smuggled to Sweden via fishing
boats. The Ghetto Fighters' House Museum has
created an online interactive workshop based on "Voices in the
Void," an animated film that portrays the mission from the
perspective of a young Bent Melchior, who later became the Chief
Rabbi of Denmark.
During this webinar,
educators will have the opportunity to interact with the accompanying IWitness
classroom activity "Voices in the Void - The Flight
and Rescue of the Jews in Denmark," and explore an
inspiring story that emphasizes values of solidarity, activism, and
teachers can play a significant role in raising young people’s
awareness of antisemitism and building their resilience to prejudice,
extremist narratives, conspiracy thinking, and the toxic ideologies
that drive discrimination and hatred. With this common goal, UNESCO,
Echoes and Reflections, and Shine
A Light have come together to provide a series of micro-credential educator opportunities
designed to positively impact teacher practice and raise critical
consciousness about the impact of antisemitism.
This webinar will
provide educators with an overview of the Shine A Light
Countering Antisemitism micro-credential resources on the IWitness
educational platform. Register to examine the role of testimony-based
resources in addressing antisemitism and conspiracy theories and
learn how to earn a Shine A Light Countering Antisemitism
