“Teaching the Holocaust through Visual Culture” interprets photomontage, sculpture, painting, book art, photographs, video testimonies, documentary, feature films, posters, flags, uniforms, and magazine illustrations. This summer seminar for K-12 educators investigates how history and visual culture inform each other when we seek to understand the Holocaust. Three primary goals inform the seminar: first, we learn how visual and written texts can be mutually reinforcing; second, we demonstrate how objects of visual culture can be studied as tools of ideology thinking, modes of political resistance, or tools of survival; and third, teachers will learn to add an art historical dimension to their curricula.
