The U.S. and the Holocaust—Ken Burns Webinar

Join PBS Books, WETA, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and ALA at 1:00 p.m. Central Time on Tuesday November 8th. Attendees will learn about THE U.S. AND THE HOLOCAUST, a film by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick & Sarah Botstein and free educational resources available to engage in this important topic.

The U.S. and the Holocaust

In this 60-minute session, you’ll meet Sarah Botstein, one of the filmmakers; hear about programming resources (film screeners, discussion guides, book lists, panel discussions, poster sets and more) related to the film and the topic; and learn about what some other libraries have done in their communities to promote connections. The presenters will also share tips to help library workers connect with your local PBS station to collaborate on a program.
