Report: Report an Antisemitic, Bias or Discriminatory Incident

If you have experienced or witnessed an incident of antisemitism, extremism, bias, bigotry or hate, please report it using the link above. Any personal information provided will be kept strictly confidential. If this is an emergency, please dial 911.


Educate: School and Community Programming

Workshops and professional development programs for your school or community:

  • Navigating Discussions about the Israel-Hamas Conflict (and minimizing/avoiding Islamophobic and Antisemitic/dehumanizing language) (60 mins)
  • Antisemitism Then and Now (60-90 minutes)    
  • Navigating Critical Conversations and Tough Topics (60-90 minutes)


Respond: Responding to Antisemitism in Your School

1) Talk to your student's teacher first. Don't presume all teachers know what antisemitism is, as well as how comments about the current conflict could potentially be antisemitic and/or permitting a culture causing fear and anxiety for some of their students. Teachers are, above all, responsible for ensuring a safe, respectful classroom for all students. If your child feels unsafe, bring this to the teacher's attention first -- the teacher likely doesn't know. Offer to connect them with us, (the Holocaust Center for Humanity) - we're happy to share our resources and support their efforts to ensure a safe classroom for all.

2) If the teacher is unresponsive and/or your conversation does not go as well as you'd like, reach out to your school's administration (principal, etc.). The same considerations as above apply here, but in this case indicate that you first brought this directly to the teacher's attention and here is what occurred (or didn't).

3) If the admin is unresponsive and/or the conversation does not go as intended, at this point you can consider informing the school district and/or school board about the problem. If you have not yet notified the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) here is where we recommend you also notify them. Report an Antisemitic, Bias, or Discriminatory Incident

Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust program (LEAS)

The Holocaust Center for Humanity, in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, provides the Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust (LEAS) program to police agencies in Washington State.

The Law Enforcement and Society (LEAS) program was created in 1999 by the ADL and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It has been adopted by 8 major cities in the U.S. and required for all FBI agents. This program is designed to connect police officers to their core values, to protect the public. It teaches them about what can happen and what did happen in a society where police treated people differently because of their race, religion, ethnicity, or beliefs. 

The Holocaust Center for Humanity began the program in 2018 training all 1,300 Seattle police officers. We are now training all recruits. In the beginning the program was a 4-hour in-person training in our museum. In 2020 we developed a 2-hour virtual program which makes the lessons more accessible across our state. Departments can choose virtual or in-person training.

As recent events have proven, justice ends in the courtroom but starts on our streets. What better place to start than to teach empathy to the individuals who are charged to implement the very laws that are meant to protect us all, equally.

To book a LEAS program for your agency, contact Branda Anderson, Teaching and Learning Specialist, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


Each LEAS program includes:

  • A tour of the Holocaust Center's core exhibition with specially trained docents or a virtual tour of the core exhibition 
  • A discussion of the role of police in Nazi Germany and the occupied territories 
  • A discussion of the professional and personal responsibilities of law enforcement professionals in American society today 


Quotes from LEAS participants:

"Very impactful presentation and discussion."

"The images were great and there was no shaming of the police." 

"The quality of the presentation and the professionalism and passion of the instructors. The class was outstanding, made me realize that I do not know enough about that period of our history and I would really like to go to the museum. The way you used the pictures in the breakout rooms and then brought us back together and gave the context and then compared law enforcement then and now - very well done!"

"Helped me and other officers reflect on why we got into the profession as a driving force to continue doing good work and reflect on our moral compass."

"In a time where I have repeatedly reconsidered my profession, this course was a great reminder of how I can contribute to reform and change. It is hard to see how our profession was used in the past, and why police were even established, but all I can hope for is that we never go back and always look forward."

Virtual attendees are encouraged to light candles to remember and honor the 6 million Jewish people, and millions of non-Jewish people who were killed in the Holocaust. On this day, we honor the past, share stories to carry on the legacy, and educate for the future.

Project Neshamah Banner 2 900x250

Project Neshamah invites B’nai Mitzvah students to honor, remember, and connect with a teen or child who was killed in the Holocaust and who has living connections to Washington State. 

"Neshamah" (Hebrew:  נשמה ) is the Hebrew word for soul, or breath. By recognizing each individual, we carry on their memories. By saying their name out loud, we keep these memories alive. 

The Holocaust Center for Humanity will provide the B’nai Mitzvah student with a name of a child and information about them. 

Below are a few suggestions for how the B’nai Mitzvah may choose to remember this child. There are many acts of remembrance and respect and we encourage B’nai Mitzvah students to find ways that are meaningful to them. 

  • Do a mitzvah in the name of the child
  • Mention the child in a speech or dvar Torah
  • Light a yahrzeit candle
  • Share their name and story with others
  • Research the child’s story


To request a name, please complete the form below. 



Not a Bar/Bat Mitzvah student, but want to participate in this project?  Or do you have a name of a family member who was a child/teen killed in the Holocaust that you would like remembred?
