Meaningful Curriculum Teaching About the Holocaust for Middle & High School
Holocaust and Human Rights – Zachor Shoah
The ideal Holocaust education curriculum is Interdisciplinary, comprehensive, age-appropriate, and meaningful. It requires teachers to be rigorous and scholarly about the topic as they guide students through lessons that elevate their knowledge of the pre-Holocaust world, the Holocaust, and the post-Holocaust world as well as their personal moral compass. It is a program of study that does not seek to make comparisons but does understand the connections and correlations between the past and the present including how to respect, protect, and engage in our democratic system.
Zachor Shoah is a scholar-educator created organization with the only teacher created- student approved textbook for the comprehensive study of the Holocaust and the history that led to it. We seek to utilize the grassroots movement model in our efforts to educate teachers, parents, community leaders and students in the comprehensive truth of the Holocaust in meaningful age-appropriate ways as well as to mobilize them into a network of Holocaust teacher-scholars advocating for ideal Holocaust education in order to prevent human rights violations and genocides by being actively engaged citizens that respect, promote, and protect our constitution. We do this one teacher at a time, one school- one community at a time.
