At the Day of Learning, students and educators from public and private schools throughout California are invited gain a deeper understanding about the Holocaust and patterns of genocide to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in the future. Each workshop includes an eyewitness testimony from a survivor of the Holocaust or another genocide. In 2014, more than 750 students and teachers from 101 schools participated in the Day of Learning.
