Description

Bringing together some of the last Holocaust survivor stories in living memory, After the Holocaust shares Jewish scholarship, activism, poetry, and personal narratives which tackle the changing face of human rights education in the 21st century. The collected voices draw on decades of research on Holocaust history to discuss education, broader human rights abuses, genocide, internment, and oppression. Advancing the dialogue between civic advocacy, public remembrance, and research, contributors discuss how the Holocaust is taught and remembered. By including additional perspectives on the context of Canadian antisemitism, the legacy of human rights abuses of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, and the internment of Japanese Canadians in World War II, After the Holocaust examines the ways the Holocaust changed thinking around human rights legislation and memorialization on a global scale.
