Holocaust Educational Conferences

Day-long conferences introducing teachers and students to in-depth study and research focused topics on the Holocaust. Each conference includes a "talk-back" session with local survivors, refugees, and liberators who were eyewitnesses to this crisis in history.  Recent topics have included:
Voices From the Holocaust:  Moving from Reflection to Action-The Decision is Yours- A study of diary entries recovered from children and adolescents who witnessed the Holocaust.
The Power of Responsibility in the Holocaust and the Age of Genocide-This conference focused on the Teaching History Matters Project which has reunited over 200 survivors and liberators of a death train liberated on April 13, 1945 in Farsleben, Germany.
 We Were There/We Are Here-An in depth look at the villagers of Le Chambon who sheltered 5,000 Jews in Nazi-occupied France.

Living On was first developed as a museum exhibition. Today it is both a traveling exhibition and an original documentary film. In the Living On exhibition you will see faces of Tennesseans who are both survivors of and witnesses to the Holocaust. The exhibition exists because each of these courageous individuals was willing to revisit painful memories, telling his or her story in hopes that history might never repeat itself.

The Tennessee Holocaust Commission Holocaust Memories Film Archive Project is composed from 80 hours of film footage of 100 Tennesseans who are Holocaust survivors, refugees, and U.S. military liberators. Our project consists of updating and editing this footage from its unused archive status to digital platforms and formats, where the footage could be easily accessed and utilized as an educational resource that preserves, sustains, and teaches this important legacy through educational DVDs and online access as well as accompanying curricular resources.
