Educators Study Tours

This educational mission affords a unique opportunity for teachers and has served to inspire and motivate them as they prepare to teach the lessons of the Holocaust and promote protection of Human Rights to their students.

Visitation to the sites of the Holocaust in Germany and Poland provides opportunities to speak with experts in the field, as teachers gain first-hand knowledge of how a re-unified Germany approaches the increased diversification of their population and is a critical component in their preparation along with their readings and studies.
