Education & Outreach HOLOCAUST EDUCATION

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Holocaust Education

The Holocaust is woven into the very existence of those who lived during that time some seven decades ago. Today, young people’s knowledge of this horrific chapter of history is limited by educators’ choices in planning their classroom curriculum. Although the mandate of “Never Again” has proved difficult to achieve, the lessons of the Holocaust remain relevant and significant in the lives of youth, including the dangers of silence, the consequences of indifference, and the responsibility to protect the vulnerable. Through programs and curriculum, ADL helps educators bring these lessons to life for students.

Yom Hashoah/Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated every year a week after the end of the Passover holiday.  It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.  Established by the Israeli government, Yom Hashoah has become a day observed by both Jewish and non-Jewish school, communities and individuals worldwide.

In the United States, Holocaust Remembrance Day has been set aside for remembering the victims of the Holocaust and for reminding us what can happen when bigotry, hatred and indifference go unchecked.  This year, Yom Hashoah is observed on April 28.

Additional Resources


Echoes and Reflections provides middle and high school teachers with print and online resources that address academic standards in a comprehensive curriculum. The program integrates visual history testimony from Holocaust survivors and other witnesses and primary source materials into conveniently packaged lessons.
