Holocaust Awareness Week

“We must continue to teach our children the lessons of history’s darkest chapters. That will help them do a better job than their elders in building a world of peaceful coexistence.” ~United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

We were fortunate enough this week to hear from Carson Phillips, educator from the Holocaust Education Centre as well as Vera Schiff, Holocaust survivor, about the purpose and value of Holocaust Education in schools. Here are a few resources you can use to teach your students about the Holocaust. Included on these sites are videos, lesson plans, activities and further resources.

Azrieli Foundation
Centropa: Teacher’s Area
Conversations About the Holocaust
Institute of Education: Holocaust Education Development Programme
Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research
