This second of two educational workshops is centered on how to teach using testimonies, art and material culture. This workshop will also include a visit to the Center for Holocaust and Genocide's exhibit "Evidence and Artifact: Documenting the Holocaust Through Images."

Participants will also listen to and discuss Seng Ty’s firsthand account of his survival of the Cambodian Genocide. Artist and teacher Renee Billingslea will discuss her art, its potential use in classrooms and the role of artists in drawing attention to, and reflecting on mass atrocities.
