Teaching American History: FDR, WWII and the Holocaust

3/8/2024 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

The Missouri State Museum is partnering with Teaching American History to host three seminars in 2023 and early 2024. These free daylong seminars connect scholars with local educators on a wide array of topics. Seminars are free, but registration is required.

The theme of this seminar is “FDR, WWII and the Holocaust.” The Holocaust was the greatest horror of World War II. When the Allies obtained evidence of Nazi Germany’s genocide of Europe’s Jewish population, how did the Allied leaders, especially President Franklin Roosevelt, respond? Did the Allies attempt to disrupt the death camps’ operations? Could the Allies have done more? How much coverage did the genocide receive in the United States, and how did the public respond? Join us as we explore the answers to these questions.

All attendees of this free professional development will receive lunch, a letter of attendance, and paper and digital copies of the reader.
