Description

Class Experience

A more personal understanding of the Holocaust and what happened in Auschwitz.
I have lectured on the subject of human rights (specifically the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document created at the end of World War II) since 2015.  In 2018 I received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award in Washington D.C. for my work in this area.

My children's heritage is greatly connected to the Holocaust, with my husband's God Father being the author Elie Wiesel, as well as both his grandparents carrying their numbered tattoos.

This may be a sensitive area to read about, but I believe my training and experience has prepared me to answer any questions that may come up.
Learners will be expected to read each week between classes.  The number of hours required will vary depending on the learners ability to read.
I would prefer if the learners are working off the complete trilogy book: "The Night Trilogy: Consisting of a Memoir, Translated by Marion Wiesel, and Two Novels", published in 2008. I will be referring to the introductions and preface found in that version of the book, as well as giving page assignments from there. Can be found on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0809073641/
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
This book does cover a first hand account of life in a death camp, told from the perspective of a frightened teenager so extreme detail is not used.
Discussions and sources will primarily exist around Elie's vast collection of books and the work done by his foundation the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity.
