What You Do Matters: Lessons from the Holocaust (Tuesday Session) – Morrow, Georgia
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia invites prosecutors and law enforcement to attend What You Do Matters: Lessons from the Holocaust, being held at the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council, located at 1590 Adamson Parkway Morrow, GA. The training will be held on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 8:30 am to 12:00pm. It will offer three hours of CLE and POST credits.
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.
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.
Please note that we are having an additional class on September 9, 2019. It is the same material, so please don’t sign up for both sessions.
There will be limited seating for this class, so please sign up as soon as possible!
