The Holocaust Museum & Learning Center, Gateway Media Literacy Partners (Cooperating School Districts is an institutional member of GMLP), The Missouri Council for Social Studies, and Big Picture Instructional Design present a free professional development workshop on the film The Last Survivor. The purpose of The Last Survivor is for viewers to learn from past mistakes, and to reflect upon how they respond to similar issues today. The film follows the survivors of four genocides and mass atrocities- The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo. It is a story dignity and hope.
The free event on June 7th takes place at The Holocaust Museum & Learning Center at 12 Millstone Campus Drive in St. Louis, Missouri. From 3-6:30 p.m., participants are invited to screen the film and discuss it amongst the group. In addition, a Holocaust Survivor will be in attendance and will take questions from the audience. Classroom-ready materials will be shared. Also, participants will also receive a copy of the documentary itself.
While this event- in just one month- has no cost, but space is limited, so you must register if you’d like to attend. The film screening & discussion, along with the materials distributed, are focused for educators who teach 7th grade and up (but any educator who is interested can register). Send any inquiries about the film itself or screening here.
