As the world struggles with the largest refugee crisis since WWII, Echoes & Reflections content can help examine the barriers to immigration, including political and bureaucratic obstacles and, in some cases, the unwillingness to accept Jewish refugees during the Holocaust. This timely offering supports educators to help students make meaningful connections to similar issues affecting people and nations today.
