About Our Program
The Holocaust continues to capture the interest and fascinating of Americans young and old. Tim Scott has spoken to thousands of students and adults throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota about this tragic period of history. Much more than a mere historical study of the the Holocaust, however, Scott's presentation makes this history relevant for Americans in the nineties and 2000s by relating it to current developments in our nation, communities and schools.; Through the dramatic use of story, video, and slides, he uses the Holocaust history to challenge the listener to identify the "flames" of prejudice, racism, bias or misunderstanding in his or her own heart. In so doing, the Holocaust becomes a catalyst for positive personal growth and change for individuals, communities and schools.
WHAT was the holocaust? What happened to who? Mr. Scott provides a detailed, graphic description of what victims and their families might have experienced.
WHY should we as Americans care about what happened a long time ago in a far away land? Why is it relevant for us? Why isn't this just "lame history"? The listener will be asked to reflect on the presence of the spirit of the Holocaust in the world, in America, in their communitiesin schools and in their hearts.
