Supports for Combating Rising Hatred

How to Respond to New Challenges Today

Click on the slideshow below to explore the following questions:

1. Why do we teach the Holocaust? Why is it relevant to today’s students and today’s world?

2. How has the Israel-Hamas War affected our students and what considerations can we make to ensure both Jewish and Muslim students feel supported? How can we talk about emotionally charged, violent events in measured, respectful ways?

3. How can I respond to the rising levels of antisemitism and Islamophobia in my schools and communities?

We understand the enormous responsibility you have as an educator and we are here to help you. Please contact Katie Cunningham, Holocaust Education and Outreach Specialist, at cunninghamk@queens.edu with any needs or questions.
