Resister/resistHER : narratives of female Holocaust resisters as moral education / Sarah L. King

Publication | Library Call Number: D804.33 .K56 2009

The central question underpinning this research is: how can Holocaust education inform issues of social justice and moral education, with particular attention paid to the growing rate of psychological bullying amongst female adolescents. An introduction to the Holocaust through a discussion of resistance to psychological bullying or other problems they have faced might offer girls the opportunity to consider connections between their experiences and the experiences of female resisters to the Holocaust. A discussion of historical and contemporary resistance can also include tenets of moral education, offering students frameworks of morality through which to view their resistance efforts. I believe that an interdisciplinary and multimodal approach to the teaching of Holocaust history, incorporating literature and other media forms can also incorporate tenets of moral education, resulting in an increased awareness of the dangers of psychological bullying and an improved ability on the part of female students to resist these practices.
