We are a Holocaust & Human Rights education organization that believes in the importance of bearing witness through comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum for teachers and students for grades 6-12.
We strive to create a community of teachers well versed in the complexity of the history of the Holocaust & Human Rights through intense training, resources, networks, & high quality professional development.
Through our educational services and projects we strive to help create a world whose young people have the tools necessary to actively participate in a democratic society, and to combat hatred, Holocaust Denial and Antisemitism in all its forms.
We provide a variety of educational services to our community including annual secondary level scholarly conferences for Holocaust education, Holocaust memorial butterfly gardens, educational outreach, workshops, resources, and community building events.
As a former classroom teacher, I know what it means to teach in today's environment. Let us help you bring important lessons on empathy, community, and history to your students while also helping meet the demands for multimedia integration, state standards, and high stakes testing requirements.
We believe we are part of a large human family and as such our community is every community. We work with people from a large list of organizations including public, private, religious and secular; Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Interfaith.
I can not imagine that an educator of your stature, knowledge, passion and drive could be anything less than the greatest asset within ANY organization. Your Crimes Against Humanity and Holocaust Studies classes brought an awareness and accountability to our school culture it had not known until you. Your garden is beautiful and will always be a reminder and reflection of the light that you turned on in so many. Thank you for your years of service and May God bless you and shine a light on your path.

When teaching about the Holocaust to secondary school students one of the greatest challenges is to find a textbook to compliment and supplement the classroom lessons. Most of the stuff out there is well-meaning but often full of gratuitous and graphic violence at the expense of discussing historical origins and context. Until now. "Beyond Auschwitz: Holocaust & Human Rights Education for the 21st Century" by Carolina Simon is an exception to this rule. It is specifically geared for students from grades 8 -12 and utilizes a student-centered approach of humanizing the victims of this genocide. This interdisciplinary text is a great help in educating today's student in the lessons of the Holocaust.
