The Roma and Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators

In partnership with Xavier University, the Holocaust Studies for Educators course provides teachers with knowledge and resources to effectively teach the Holocaust in the classroom. The course features local, national, international scholars and experts in the fields of Holocaust, genocide, religious and diversity education. Teachers will engage in dialogue with survivors and other eyewitnesses, as they study the historical overview of the Holocaust.  Educators will also receive hands on experience with high quality lessons and activities from the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), Yad Vashem, USC Shoah Foundation, and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

This year’s keynote presenter will be Dr. Marion Kaplan. Dr. Kaplan is the Skirball Professor of Modern Jewish History at NYU. She is a three-time National Jewish Book Award winner and her new book focuses on the daily lives and feelings of refugees in Portugal during World War II. She has edited books and taught courses on German-Jewish history, European women’s history, German women’s history, German and European history, as well as European Jewish history, and Jewish women’s history. 

The course is named in honor of Roma and Sam Kaltman, Holocaust survivors who relocated and lived in Cincinnati. The Kaltman’s were committed to education and telling their stories, so that future generations would “not forget.” In its 21st year, the Kaltman’s daughter Sandy, and her husband John Isidor continue their commitment to Holocaust remembrance and education in presenting this course.  Additional funding is provided by the Claims Conference.

The course is open to all educators currently teaching in the classroom.

34 contact hours or an option of 2 hour graduate level credits are available at an additional fee.

Fees: $100 for course, $500 for course and graduate credit. For more information, please contact Jodi Elowitz at 513-487-3055 or
