Educator Workshops

One-day educator workshops on the Holocaust and patterns of genocide combine acquisition of knowledge with innovative teaching strategies. They help educators design lessons that encourage students to develop critical thinking skills and the ability to relate the lessons of the Holocaust to their own lives.
