Using Simon Wiesenthal's "The Sunflower" to Teach the Study of Genocide and the Holocaust
Ducey, Kimberley A.
College Teaching, v57 n3 p167-176 Sum 2009
The author discusses a project called ""The Sunflower" Symposium," named in honor of Simon Wiesenthal's "The Sunflower" (1998). The project was a catalyst for discussions on legalized discrimination, the infringement of civil rights, (in)justice, (in)tolerance, and civic responsibility, influencing students to connect the Holocaust to other world events. It proved an effective pedagogic method for examining critically and taking action on important global issues. Evidence of the effectiveness of this message is presented and suggestions for integrating literature into courses are offered. (Contains 3 notes.)
