Bridges of Memory: Connecting Communities & Classrooms (Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies)

Bridges of Memory: Connecting Communities & Classrooms was a series of community dialogues and virtual educator workshops with the aim to learn about genocides from the experiences and perspectives of local survivors and survivor communities. Topics included the Armenian Genocide, Holodomor, Holocaust, and Cambodian Genocide, as well as a focus on how individuals and communities share stories of loss and survival, navigate trauma, memorialize victims, preserve and celebrate culture, and educate younger generations. 
Each of the four sessions, offered in partnership with a community organization, featured a moderated conversation with a member of a survivor community followed by a question and answer session with participants. The series concluded with three workshops specifically aimed at educators to discuss teaching about difficult histories and navigate trauma in school and community education settings.
