|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (PDF) Ebook (EPUB)|
Holocaust education is a controversial and rapidly evolving field. This book, which critically analyses the very latest research, discusses a number of the most important debates which are emerging within it. Adopting a truly global perspective, Contemporary Debates in Holocaust Education explores both teachers' and students' levels of Holocaust knowledge as well as their attitudes and approaches towards the subject. Moreover, it employs a forward-looking perspective by thinking about how the subject will be taught when there are no survivors remaining and what challenges and opportunities digital technology, social media and online learning offer the modern teacher of the Holocaust. This book seeks to shift the parameters of existing debates and offer an insightful commentary on the nature, scope and direction of Holocaust education, which will be of great use to academics, teachers and policy-makers alike.
