Teacher Training

Join the Holocaust Center for a teacher training (Act 48 credit hours available) with Dr. Alan Rosen, a scholar on the life and work of Night author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.  Any educator who teaches the Holocaust is welcome to attend, but the training will be of particular interest to those who use Night in the classroom.  The training will include: an overview of age-appropriate literature of the Holocaust and the place of Night, how to use Wiesel’s work in teaching the Holocaust, and Dr. Rosen’s personal recollections of working with Wiesel.  Cost is $10 to attend, or $25 for those educators who want Act 48 credit.  For more information or to RSVP, please contact Christina Sahovey at csahovey@hcpgh.org or 412-939-7289.

Monday, Feb. 6, 7:00 pm, Holocaust Center
Lecture - “Capturing the Fire, Envisioning the Redemption: The Life and Work of Elie Wiesel"  

The Holocaust Center welcomes Dr. Alan Rosen, a scholar on the life and work of Night author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.  Dr. Rosen will be discussing Wiesel as he knew him, as well as his legacy and what we can still learn from Wiesel’s works.  Question and Answer segment will follow; light refreshments will be served.  Cost is $10 to attend, and free for Holocaust survivors and students (must present a valid student ID at the door).  For more information or to RSVP, please contact Christina Sahovey at csahovey@hcpgh.org or 412-939-7289.
