What You Do Matters: Lessons from the Holocaust (Tuesday Morning Session)
The Holocaust is much more than an unspeakable horror from WWII or a chapter in a history book. The study of the Holocaust provides important insight into the consequences when the mission of the police, judiciary, and the legal profession is transformed from protecting the rights of individuals to actively abusing basic human civil rights. Using legal decrees, judicial opinions, and case law of the period, participants study the role of these professions in the destruction of democracy and the establishment of the Nazi German state.
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia along with Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Councilinvites prosecutors and law enforcement to attend:
What You Do Matters: Lessons from the Holocaust
Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council,1590 Adamson Parkway in Morrow, GA
Tuesday, August 17, 2021 from 9:00am – 12:30pm
This training will offers up to 3.5 CLE hours (including Ethics hour), 3.5 Advocate credits, and/or 3 POST hours.
Using Historical images and stories from the Holocaust, trained facilitators engage students in a dialogue about the role of law enforcement in today’s communities and the importance of core values in ensuring the integrity and vibrancy of democracy. Participants are challenged to examine their own roles and responsibilities as members of professions that hold the public trust, protect society, and influence the health of our democracy by studying the decision making, the opportunities, and often the failures of their counterparts in Nazi Germany that helped lead to mass murder.
“This course was the most meaningful experience in my career as a prosecutor to instill the importance of performing our job in a nonbiased objective manner. . . This course is far and above any ethics course that has been offered . . . This course will be in my mind as a reminder of “why we do what we do” on a totally different level.”
“As the current Chaplain for the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police I would like to see every
police chief and sheriff in Georgia take this training.”
There is no fee for attending this course and no funding available for reimbursements. Therefore, there will be no lodging, meal or mileage reimbursement for attending this course.
