Near Normal Man Educator Workshop
October 3, 2018 • 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
The Clinton Center’s outdoor installation, The Anne Frank Tree, provides a unique opportunity for students of all ages to learn more about the ongoing struggle for social justice and human rights. Educators will view Near Normal Man, a half-hour documentary film, featuring a first-hand account by Ben Stern. Mr. Stern survived two ghettos, nine concentration camps, the Nazi physician Josef Mengele, and two death marches. He has spoken to hundreds of audiences of all ages across America to spark dialogue about the human condition and endurance.

Teachers will then be given the necessary tools to explore applicable questions for for students: questions and lessons both timely and timeless—about the nature of evil, the power of the human spirit, the struggle against injustice, and how one lives a life of integrity and authenticity in the face of unmitigated evil.
