Subject : “Studying the Holocaust and History through Photography: Concepts and Controversies”
Detail : Holocaust Museum Houston will offer this one-day educator’s workshop during which participants will explore the various forms of Holocaust-era photography and consider the perspective and use of the images during the Holocaust. Participants will expand photograph analysis and media literacy skills to incorporate in their classrooms as activities that enrich teaching of the Holocaust and the new understandings being developed by historians today. After taking part in analysis-based programming, participants will spend part of the afternoon at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston as they tour the exhibit “War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath” with the lead curator of that show, Anne Wilkes Tucker. After viewing this show, participants will return to Holocaust Museum Houston for a preview of the upcoming exhibition, “Through Soviet Jewish Eyes,” a photography-based exhibition exploring images created during the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. This exhibition will be on view at HMH beginning in April 2013. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for five hours in creativity and instructional strategies. The cost for the one-day session – including materials – is $25. Lunch is not included. Seating is limited, and advance registration is required.
