The Museum provides educators across the globe with resources in a variety of formats to promote effective teaching about the Holocaust and antisemitism.
The purpose of these educational modules is to help students learn about fighting prejudice; responding to genocide; religion and identity; and other topics of contemporary relevance.
As a teaching resource, the modules illustrate the existence and broad impact of modern-day antisemitism; demonstrate the ongoing relevance of the Holocaust to law, faith, the arts, and other areas; and introduce, punctuate, or end sections of study, as homework or in-class listening.
A component of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Permanent Exhibition, this film introduces the origins of antisemitism—hatred of Jews—from the days of the early Christian church until the era of the Holocaust in the mid-20th century. The film prepares students for a discussion of why Jews have been targeted throughout history and how antisemitism offered fertile ground to the Nazis.
