About the Conference

Funded by a grant from the Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Foundation, this conference is designed for pre-service teachers, middle and high school educators, and community college faculty. This conference introduces participants to the Museum's pedagogical approach to teaching about the Holocaust, as well as Museum resources.

While the conference is designed for teachers who have less than five years of experience teaching about the Holocaust, we welcome all educators to the 2021 conference. 

During the conference, Museum educators and scholars share rationales, strategies, and approaches for teaching about the Holocaust. Participants have the opportunity to network with other educators, hear from Holocaust survivors, and explore the Museum’s full range of resources. Those who complete the conference receive educational materials from the Museum.
