Our students participated in a three-day seminar at the Ghetto Fighter’s House Museum. Day One of the seminar featured a tour of the Kibbutz to learn about its history, a tour of Yad Layeled, the children’s Memorial Museum, and discussions about the museum and the kibbutz in general. Day Two featured a discussion with Evelin Akherman, the Museum Director; a session with Anat Bratman-Elhalel, the Archive Director; a tour of exhibits in the main museum with Lisa Schulz-Yatsiv; and a conversation with Rotem Kornblit, the Director of the Education Department. Day Three was centered on learning about and experiencing the Center for Humanistic Education under the Guidance of Dr. David Netzer, who works at the center and teaches an education course in the program.
