This Hyperdoc asks students to read background and primary source material from the Salem Witch Trials and the McCarthy Trials in order to understand a primary theme from the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller. The Hyperdoc asks students to consider the way that fear impacts people by presenting opportunties for students to consider fear in their personal lives, in history, and in current events.
All MCHE materials are appropriate for grades 7th and up only. We encourage you to explore the many options and resources we have available. The Midwest Center for Holocaust Education (MCHE) was founded in 1993 by Holocaust survivors Isak Federman and Jack Mandelbaum. We teach the history of the Holocaust, applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide. Located at the Jewish Community Campus in Overland Park, MCHE reaches thousands of youths and adults each year through school and community outreach programs, often offered in cooperation with other not-for-profits. More than 400 individuals are current members of MCHE. An operating endowment totaling over $2 million is prudently invested to ensure the future operations of the organization. Other sources of revenue include annual memberships, grants, tribute donations, and program fees, as well as sales of books and documentary films based on local testimony of eyewitnesses to the Holocaust. We are a 501(c)(3), and donations to MCHE are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.
At the invitation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City, the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education joined the Federation’s list of partner agencies in June 1996. Within the family of Federation agencies, we are unique in the bridges we build to the non-Jewish community. This priority is reflected in our board of directors, more than one-third of which is not Jewish.

From Debbie Levy: "Today, Jo Ann will be the first to remind you that she is just one of twelve black students who went through the agonizing experience of desegregating Clinton High School. She'll make sure you know that because of her parents' decision to leave, she spent only one semester there. The heroes, she'll say, are Bobby Cain and Gail Ann Epps - the ones who hung in there long enough to graduate despite the danger and discomfort of showing up, day after day, to a place where they knew they were not wanted. I say they are all heroes."
