For Educators

Teaching about the Holocaust goes beyond understanding the historical fact that six million Jews and other innocent victims of the Germans and their collaborators were brutally murdered in Nazi-occupied Europe. It can help students think about the use and abuse of power and the roles and responsibilites of individuals, organizations, and nations when confronted with human rights violations. As students gain insight into the many facets that resulted in the Holocaust, they can gain awareness into the complexity of the historical process and a perspective on how a convergence of factors can contribute to genocide.
