Engage with History by Hearing from a Witness to History
“Hearing the experience of the speaker made it more real for kids and they were shocked that this could happen to millions of people. They found it really sad, but important—so that it never happens again.”
Build empathy in your students through the power of personal testimony by inviting a Holocaust survivor to speak in your classroom. The Coppel Speakers Bureau provides a forum for Holocaust survivors and their descendants to share their stories with students, either in person or virtually.
HHC is currently holding all Coppel Speakers Bureau presentations online.
To schedule a speaker, please fill out all of the information below. Speakers Bureau requests must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. HHC recommends speakers for audiences over the age of 11.
