The Georgia Council on the Social Studies (GCSS) hosts an annual conference. The 2016 conference will be held at the Classic Center in Athens on October 13-14, 2016. A large number of teachers from across Georgia participate in over 100 concurrent sessions and visit the exhibit hall filled with social studies resources.
The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust will be presenting a session titled Were We Our Brothers' Keepers: Holocaust Collaboration and Complicity. Millions of ordinary people witnessed the crimes of the Holocaust—in the countryside and city squares, in stores and schools, in homes and workplaces. Across Europe, the Nazis found countless willing helpers who collaborated or were complicit in their crimes. What motives and pressures led so many individuals to abandon their fellow human beings? Why did others make the choice to help?
It is free admission to the session but attendees must be registered for the conference.
