With increased hate-fueled violence, incidents of antisemitism and xenophobia, and challenges to democratic values and norms, Holocaust education is more important than ever.
Through a thoughtful and sound study of the Holocaust, students gain an understanding of the potential dangers and consequences of unchecked hate and can grow into responsible citizens.

After participating in our professional development programs, teachers indicate high levels of satisfaction:
Echoes & Reflections is the kind of resource we want to put into the hands of our secondary teachers. The modular nature of the lessons and the integration of visual history testimony make this a very teacher-friendly resource. Your materials support students to use critical thinking skills and to apply what they have learned in their daily lives.
