What’s new for educators at the Holocaust & Humanity Center?

The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center is excited to host its annual Jacob G. Schmidlapp Bystander to Upstander Youth Leadership Day on March 8, 2022. Every year, educators nominate seventh and eighth grade students to attend the interactive and inspiring day-long event. Students engage in dialogue with participants from across the tri-state, learn about how history can inspire action today, and gain leadership skills they can use to affect positive change as upstanders.
 
One of HHC’s many education initiatives is to build future leaders. At HHC, we value the work educators do for their students and laying the foundation for students to become the leaders of tomorrow.
 
Your commitment to delivering quality Holocaust education is imperative, and we deeply appreciate the effort you put into your role as a teacher. Please nominate yourself or a colleague for our new Lilly & Mark Kurtz Educator Award.
 
We’re here to help you reach your goals as an educator. You can email our staff for personalized assistance or please explore some of our curricular resources. We wish you a good second half of the school year and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming program or visit to the museum.
