Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators 2021

June 14-June 30, 2021

Studies show that students who study the Holocaust are more empathetic, caring and demonstrate higher critical thinking skills. The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center has the expertise and resources to help you effectively teach the Holocaust.
