Gender and Sexuality in Our Understanding of the Holocaust

Thursday, January 4, 2018: 3:50 PM
Washington Room 2 (Marriott Wardman Park)
W. Jake Newsome, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Dr. Newsome will discuss the challenges and rewards of integrating themes of gender and sexuality into teaching about the Holocaust. Including the persecution and experiences of queer people not only writes these communities back into the history; it also fundamentally changes how we understand the Holocaust.
