Echoes & Reflections
Echoes & Reflections is a program that provides secondary educators with the professional development and resources needed to teach students about the Holocaust with confidence. Supported by three world leaders in education—the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation and Yad Vashem—it is a trusted source for Holocaust education content, providing a wealth of print and digital content that is replete with primary sources including visual history testimony from Jewish survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust. Educators who utilize Echoes & Reflections report that it does more than teach about this historical event. It provides an opportunity for students to critically examine the lasting impact of the Holocaust and its continued importance when studying social issues unfolding in the world today.
Since 2005, 3.2 million middle and high school students have experienced this acclaimed Holocaust curriculum. To date, more than 30,000 teachers are trained to implement its lesson plans in 10,000 schools nationwide.
Hidden Child Foundation/ADL
From 1939 to 1945, all Jewish children in Nazi-occupied countries were hunted and threatened with death. To survive, they had to go into hiding or keep their true identities secret. Today, they are the last survivors—the last to bear witness to the Holocaust. The Hidden Child Foundation/ADL attends to the needs of its now-elderly members, assists scholars and institutions in documenting the Holocaust, and educates students about the consequences of bigotry and hatred so that no one—most of all, no child—will ever endure another genocide. The final repository of the Hidden Child archives, all the information about the experiences of hidden children during World War II and beyond, will eventually be in the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.
