The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education mission is to educate, through the lens of the Holocaust, about the dangers of intolerance, to invoke critical thinking, and to inspire moral courage in the face of injustice.
In pursuit of our mission, the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education will:
- Educate all who wish to learn about the Holocaust, genocide, and grave human rights violations in order to promote understanding of causes and consequences; thereby enabling foresight necessary to prevent similar recurrences.
- Facilitate an understanding of the universal nature of human dignity and of the critical importance to respect and defend it.
Work collaboratively with individuals and organizations who share our commitment to justice for all people.
- Serve and build our community through quality educational programming and commemoration events.
- Confront acts of ignorance, hatred, and injustice by serving as a model of community engagement directed by informed, rational understanding.
The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education has launched an Educational Toolkit for teachers, community organizers, and corporations. This Toolkit provides access to educational materials on the Holocaust and Genocide, including videos, lesson plans, and classroom resources adaptable for virtual or in-person learning.
We are thrilled to share this Educational Toolkit, custom designed with best practices and innovative programs at a time when it continues to be much needed in our schools and communities. Please contact Andrea Myer Winograd at [email protected] for more information on access to these resources and the full Educational Toolkit as it becomes available.
The Museum & Center also host regular exhibits and events that are pertinent to their mission.
