Conference Proceeding: Teaching the Holocaust through the Arts

The purpose of the David Labkovski Project is to educate through the art of David Labkovski. By engaging viewers with his paintings and sketches, students learn lessons of life, survival, tolerance, acceptance, and the importance of bearing witness to history. Ms. Raikin will provide examples of how Holocaust materials, either those of David Labkovski, or items already in Judaica libraries, can be used to inspire middle and high school students to produce their own works of art or creative writing to then share with their local community or online.
