Through our foundational professional development program, educators enhance their knowledge and capacity to teach about the Holocaust, including the history of antisemitism, the establishment of the ghettos, the “Final Solution,” and how this historical event continues to influence the world today.
Explore the events of the Holocaust through the lens of media, by examining propaganda deployed by the Nazis to discriminate against Jews and other minorities. Educators gain the tools to facilitate classroom discussions on the role and impact of Nazi propaganda during the Holocaust and support their students to critically analyze media in today’s world.
Educators learn strategies to integrate multiple primary sources into Holocaust instruction with a focus on the human experience. Programs examine a range of sources, such as photography, art or poetry.
Increase students’ awareness that antisemitism did not end after the Holocaust and consider connections between the persistence of antisemitism in its contemporary forms and this historical event. Educators will also examine ways to help students explore the responsibility of all members of society to respond to and prevent antisemitism and all forms of hate.
The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center is more than a state-of-the art museum. Offering dynamic public programming for all audiences, best-in-class curricular and educational resources, and cutting-edge community engagement opportunities, the Center is positioned as one of the premiere museums and resource centers in the country.
Ohioans are witnessing an alarming rise in antisemitic incidents, while, at the same time, it is becoming clear that fewer Americans than ever have even a basic understanding of what happened during the Holocaust or why that is still pressingly relevant today. Effective Holocaust curriculum in our classrooms is crucial to changing that, and studies show bad Holocaust education is worse than none at all. That’s why a central Ohio synagogue is hosting middle and high school educators for a free two-day seminar this summer in a partnership with the national group Echoes and Reflections to offer professional development, classroom materials, and a powerful learning experience for all.
Our Jewish Community Relations Council has launched a campaign to fight antisemitism by providing awareness, resources and ways to get more involved in this important initiative. Click the image below to find resources on how to fight antisemitism including other Holocaust education opportunities.
