Former Managing Director of the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET), Joe Hayman shares his reflections on the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust and the future of Holocaust education.
As the Holocaust moves from living history, Joe Hayman will reflect on his own education on the Holocaust at a multicultural comprehensive school 25 years ago, how the subject is taught in schools today and how it can continue to have an impact for the next 25 years and beyond. As someone of mixed Jewish and Christian heritage, he will share personal reflections on how playing a leading role in a Holocaust education charity changed him personally and explore how personal development and change can remain a crucial part of Holocaust education. He will discuss the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust and Holocaust education both in terms of the Jewish community and wider society, and offer thoughts on how Holocaust education can remain relevant and impactful when witnesses and survivors are no longer able to share their testimony.
