The Importance of Teaching the Holocaust

In one recent survey of adults under 40, 63% did not know that six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. In fact, more than 1 in 10 of those surveyed did not know the word “Holocaust” at all. This has led many to call for an increase in education surrounding this deeply tragic time in history. Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) is working to do just that through its Holocaust Education program. This new initiative, made possible partly through a generous grant from The Theodore and Pauline Cohen Charitable Trust, is designed to help educators teach students about the Holocaust.
