Week Long Event: Dayeinu! Learning from the Holocaust:

  • Bucknell University 1 Dent Drive Lewisburg, PA, 17837 United States (map)

Dayeinu! will offer the Bucknell community, central PA community, and regional educators the opportunity to learn how to teach the Holocaust effectively, and how to apply the lessons of the Holocaust to contemporary concerns about rising nationalism and ongoing world conflicts. Musical performances, talks, workshops, and films will be offered to demonstrate how the arts have been used to commemorate, contextualize, and heal from widescale trauma. The week will culminate in a performance by the Bucknell Opera Theatre of “Brundibar”, a children’s opera composed in 1939 and performed for the first time in 1942 by the children of the Theresienstadt concentration camp.
