How to Teach the Holocaust

Teaching the complex history of the Holocaust can feel intimidating. 

Depending on where you are in your journey as a Holocaust educator, you may be asking yourself… 

  • Where do I even begin?
  • What terminology should I be using? What images should I be showing?
  • What should I not do?
  • How can I ensure I am honoring the lives lost?
  • How can I make the Holocaust relevant to my students’ worlds today?
  • and so much more…
