Holocaust Memorial Observance
Not Long Ago Nor Far Away: Lessons of the Holocaust for Today's Students
At a time when hate, intolerance and antisemitism are frequently in the news,
Holocaust remembrance is more important than ever.
On April 11th, the Concord-Carlisle Human Rights Council and the Town of Concord
co-sponsored our annual Holocaust Memorial Observance.
Johanna Glazer, A Social Studies teacher at Concord-Carlisle High School,
gave a Zoom presentation about the importance of Holocaust education in our schools
and the need for remembrance.
Johanna focused on the ways in which teaching and learning about the Holocaust
can ultimately provide students with a greater understanding of democracy,
justice and the power of their own voices
against oppression and injustice today. It was a memorable evening.
Johanna Glazer has been a Social Studies teacher at Concord-Carlisle High School for 25 years and is currently teaching a course at Concord-Carlisle entitled "Dictatorship and Democracy". Johanna strives to help students understand the difficult history of the Holocaust while also connecting to the world in which we currently reside.
