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.

Available resources include:

Teaching Trunks

Age appropriate, Florida standards-based lessons

Holocaust Survivors Speakers Bureau

Holocaust survivors and second-generation family members share their stories. Available for in-person and virtual talks

Holocaust Memorial Gallery Tours

In-person and virtual tours may be scheduled

Teacher Training & Additional Resources

Commemorating both unfathomable loss and the indomitable will to survive, The Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery is the first space of its kind between Atlanta and Miami. The memorial contains a two-panel granite installation designed by Holocaust survivor Morris Bendit to remember those Jews who perished.
