Holocaust Education Resources for Educators
Join us for Teacher’s Night
Monday, November 14, 2022 | 5:00-7:00pm
Northeast Florida educators are invited to join us over lite bites, wine, and beer, and learn what we can do for you. The evening will include networking, a tour of the gallery led by the curator of the Holocaust Memorial Gallery, Hope McMath; a panel discussion with JFCS’s Holocaust Educator, Melissa Williams; 2nd generation survivors from the Speakers Bureau; and one of the educators we’ve previously partnered with. We’ll have teaching trunks on display and will walk everyone through all of the resources we have to offer, followed by an open discussion with attending educators about how we can help you teach the Holocaust.

The Importance of Teaching the Holocaust
In a 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. The LJD Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) is working to increase knowledge surrounding this deeply tragic time in history though our Holocaust Education program. This initiative is designed to assist Northeast Florida educators in teaching their students about the Holocaust.
