Join us on October 20 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm for Understand, Educate, and Heal: Renate Frydman, Ph.D., and the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center. Dr. Frydman will share her story of fleeing Germany just days before Kristallnacht, and how it has shaped her lifelong focus on educating students about the Holocaust, genocide, racism, and bullying.
Dr. Frydman’s talk will be livestreamed on WSU TV, and will include a Q&A session with future teachers from the Wright State University School of Education and Leadership.
A gift from the Frydman family, the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center is housed within the Charles and Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center (ERC). This nationally recognized collection of materials about the Holocaust, modern genocides, racism, and bullies/bullying includes books for the scholarly student and the K–12 classroom; curriculum guides; and non-print items such as films, audiobooks, and kits. It is one of the most extensive collections of its kind in the Midwest. Search for items in the DHRC collection in the libraries’ catalog.
Of special interest in the DHRC collection is Faces of the Holocaust, a unique series of interviews produced by the DHRC through Wright State University. These interviews include not only eyewitness accounts of Holocaust survivors, liberators, protectors of Holocaust Jews, and observers, but also stories told by their descendants. For more information, see the Faces of the Holocaust curriculum guide for teachers.
