Today is the last day of the seminar. It was another full day as we listened to experts, speak about the Challenges of Holocaust Education and whee we are going. The main points brought up is how the Holocaust has been trivialized and how Holocaust vernacular has become mainstream . A panel discussion of secondary teachers followed but the venue was not conducive to a discussion. It was a bit frustrating. I am now sitting in a room waiting for a survivor to present her story. I do not think I will have internet later on due to the exorbitant fees hence I am writing now. The program will conclude after the presentation of the survivor and then back to the hotel. I am still waiting to hear from my cousin as to where and when I will meet her in Tel Aviv tomorrow- and to all my friends and family that know me well.... know I am stressed not knowing yet where and when to meet her!!! Hope you all are enjoying my blog and I hope to continue with my family visit.
