Editor of Encyclopedia of Concentration Camps and Ghettos to Lecture
The University’s Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies will host a public lecture by Martin Dean, applied research scholar at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and editor of the recently published Encyclopedia of Concentration Camps and Ghettos, Volume II.
The program, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Monday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. in Wilde Auditorium. The lecture is co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation Association of CT and Voices of Hope.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) Encyclopedia of Concentration Camps and Ghettos is the result of over a decade of research by editors Geoffrey Megargee and Martin Dean and a team of researchers at the USHMM. Prior to joining the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies in Washington, Dean worked as the senior historian for the Metropolitan Police War Crimes Unit in London.

Holocaust and Genocide Educators Workshop
Also on Monday, Oct. 28, Dean will speak at the Greenberg Center’s 14th Annual Holocaust and Genocide Educators Workshop. The workshop is designed to prepare area educators for excellence in teaching about the Holocaust and genocide. At the day-long workshop, area teachers are able to study both pedagogy and special units on how to teach about the Holocaust and genocide in middle and high school curricula in Social Studies, Language Arts, Art, History, and other disciplines.
Workshop faculty include award-winning middle school and high school teachers, as well as outstanding academics from universities across the United States. This year’s workshop also will feature a tour of the new exhibition, Genocide: Israel W. Charny and the Scourge of the Twentieth Century, in the University of Hartford’s Museum of Jewish Civilization (located in Mortensen Library). The workshop and evening lecture continue the new initiatives in Genocide and Holocaust Education in the region announced during the visit of the President of Rwanda to the University of Hartford on March 12, 2013.
