Moss, Barbara, Ed.
Voices from the Middle, v20 n3 p52-56 Mar 2013
In this column, the author reviews books and other resources that address issues related to teaching tolerance for those of other religions, races, gender orientations, and cultures. It reviews titles related to Jewish oppression, including Doreen Rappaport's (2012) "Beyond Courage, the Untold Story of Jewish Resistance during the Holocaust". It also addresses the civil rights movement and intolerance toward lesbians, bisexuals, gays, and transsexuals, including the powerful "October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard" (Newman, 2012). Nonfiction titles about cultures and people of the Middle East are also reviewed, including "Sharing Our Homeland: Palestinian and Jewish Children at a Summer Peace Camp" (Marx, 2010). Online and other free resources about teaching tolerance are reviewed, describing many materials from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
