“Tolerance is what keeps humanity together, I believe.”
—Anne Willem Meijer, Member of the Dutch Resistance
Through an exploration of six case studies of mass atrocities, this framework designed for students in grades 7th grade and above offers historical background, discussion questions and classroom activities, each aligned to the 2010 Ohio State Learning Standards and the Common Core Standards.
Case Studies Include:
Recently published in the British Journal: The Holocaust in History and Memory, in which CHHE’s Director of Educational Outreach, Alexis Storch, was a contributor. “Teaching About T4″ integrates reflections from seven scholars and educators from Germany, Israel, the UK and the US, discussing how classroom educators can incorporate the Nazis’ persecution of people with disabilities into the larger history of the Holocaust.
The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Righteous Pictures on The Last Survivor Partnership Program. The partnership centers on the award-winning film, The Last Survivor. This film explores the experiences of four survivors of genocide and atrocities as they rebuild their lives. CHHE was selected as a partner to spread the film’s message of genocide awareness and education. The partnership program will make the feature-length and classroom-version documentary, The Last Survivor, available to our constituents. “After a three-year, intensive community and educational engagement campaign, we are excited to be partnering with such an established and well-respected organization in the field of genocide awareness and education to get our film seen by even more teachers, students, and engaged citizens,” said Michael Pertnoy, producer and co-director of The Last Survivor.
