Educators are invited to join the Holocaust & Humanity Center for a five-day institute that will give them effective and engaging techniques for teaching the Holocaust in their classrooms.

The course was quite literally jam packed with information, phenomenal speakers, and comprehensive coverage of this difficult and complex subject.
-Rebecca Holzman, Educator & 2021 Institute Graduate

For almost thirty years the Roma & Sam Kaltman Institute on Teaching the Holocaust has trained educators to teach the Holocaust effectively; helping their students be the best of humanity today. Whether you have a day, a week, a month or an entire semester, this institute can help you with practical classroom-based strategies for teaching this complex history. At this week-long workshop, you will:

  • Learn how teaching the Holocaust helps your students develop empathy and make personal connections to history.
  • Individualize the history by incorporating the testimonies of local Holocaust survivors with ready-to-implement activities.
  • Explore curricular strategies for both ELA and social studies classrooms that connects historical content with the vital literacy skills students need to succeed.
  • Join a network of Holocaust educators who, along with HHC staff, will support your work in the classroom for years to come.
