Holocaust Center for Humanity

Resources for Teachers

At the Holocaust Center for Humanity, we build courageous communities by teaching and honoring the history, stories, and lessons of the Holocaust.  These lessons give students of all ages an empathetic lens to view today’s complex issues and see the role they can each play in fighting hate.

Through education, events, field trips, museum visits, and community programs, the Holocaust Center for Humanity remains dedicated to its responsibility to fight hate by educating students, teachers, and the general public about the dangers of intolerance and the difference each one of us can make.

Supporting educators as they bring Holocaust education to their classrooms is one of our most important projects. Below, you can find our full range of resources for teachers and school districts.

Feedback from a student visitor to our museum

"Talking with the students, they just expressed how [HCH] made the history come alive. One student who rarely speaks in class said he learned more than he had in any reading he had done in his textbook."
