Holocaust Education requires pedagogical development in order to distinguish between the history and the moral lessons one can draw. Learning about the Holocaust can lead young people to make comparisons to the modern world in terms of human rights, discrimination, persecution, and prejudice. This guide provides instructional material to navigate this sensitive topic, as well as, narratives, primary resources, literature and informational text to teach this topic in a respectful, thought-provoking responsible way.
