Join the St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum in August for a series of four virtual lectures called “Why This Matters.” The first three programs – covering antisemitism, Holocaust Education, and media literacy – all lead up to a “sneak peek” from world-renowned museum designer Patrick Gallagher, of the new St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum, opening in summer 2022. Why is this new museum of crucial importance for the St. Louis community and beyond? Join us in August to find out.

Ariel Behrman & Jesse Tannetta will look at the vital need for Holocaust education on multiple fronts, the two most concerning being the lack of knowledge about the Holocaust in the US and the many benefits to Holocaust education, which is supported by survey data conducted on college students commissioned by Echoes & Reflections in 2019. Next, they will provide an overview of legislation about Holocaust education nationally and in Missouri, the work Echoes does in promoting Holocaust education, and their evaluation work to demonstrate the success of their programs.
