Studies show that students who study the Holocaust are more empathetic, caring and demonstrate higher critical thinking skills. The Holocaust lends itself to an interdisciplinary approach and can be taught through Social Studies and beyond. English Language Arts, Music, Art, Science, Geography, World Religions, and many more subjects can be meaningful avenues to study the Holocaust.
The Holocaust is a case study to help us act in our present time. It is a lesson to help reflect on how we can inspire young people to be engaged citizens and stand up against prejudice and hatred of all kinds.
Roma & Sam Kaltman, Holocaust survivors who made Cincinnati their home, devoted their lives to educating teachers about the Holocaust and we honor their memory with this annual workshop.

The Roma & Sam Kaltman Holocaust Studies for Educators is made possible through funding provided by the Claims Conference.
