Podcast 3: Conspiracy theories and the Holocaust – in conversation with Jeremy Hayward

Listen here

Conspiracy theories are nothing new: Did the moon landing really happen? Is global warming an invention? Did Hitler escape his bunker to live in South America after the war? Jeremy Hayward, an expert in teaching controversial issues at UCL, discusses what such theories might mean for contemporary classrooms.

The podcast discusses the importance of teaching about what conspiracy theories are, how they work, and how to counter them in the classroom, particularly in relation to teaching about the Holocaust.
