This two-day learning opportunity will take place on subsequent Sundays, February 10 and 17; and is inspired by the JMM’s upcoming exhibit opening in February 2019 Jewish Refugees and Shanghai. The exhibit highlights the international city of Shanghai which became the temporary home to more than 20,000 Jewish refugees from Germany, Austria, Lithuania and Poland during WWII.


The two -day professional development opportunity includes a visit to the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Washington D.C. and a visit to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to see the exhibit Americans and the Holocaust.  The second day will be held at the Jewish Museum of Maryland where participants will hear from dedicated scholars and educators who will share best practices and education resources.  Baltimore City teachers will also receive AU credit for participation upon completion of an implementation plan.
