The short videos, produced by Museum educators and historians provide guidance on how to teach about the Holocaust. The videos explain how educators can use Museum-created resources with their students. These resources include classroom-ready lessons and digital learning tools. The videos also cover guidelines for teaching about the Holocaust, appropriate pedagogy, and classroom strategies.

Hear What Educators Who Have Attended Belfer Are Saying

“The uniqueness of Belfer is the combination of vetted classroom-ready resources and the exposure to a variety of world-class historians and museum professionals.”

“In 15 years of teaching middle and high school ELA, this conference is, by far, the BEST professional development that I have been privileged to attend.” 

“The resources, the people, and the experiences! The opportunity to learn from museum staff and educators is a MUST-do opportunity, especially being virtual—no travel, no arrangements to be made, no expenses.”

This program is made possible with generous support from the Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Foundation.
