Educators Study Tours

 

The opportunity to visit the sites of the Holocaust in Germany and Poland and speak with experts in the field and also to experience how re-unified Germany approaches the increased diversification of the population far exceeds whatever teachers can learn in courses and through extensive reading.

This educational mission affords a unique opportunity for teachers and should inspire and motivate them in their preparation to teach the lessons of the Holocaust and human rights to their students.
