The Holocaust occurred well over 60 years ago but the lessons are still relevant and critical today. This is why Social Studies and Language Arts teachers across the country continue to find innovative and effective methods for teaching the Holocaust. Please click on one of the following links for resources and tools on how you can teach the Holocaust:
Teaching the Holocaust and Human Rights
Everything you need to teach the Holocaust, delivered to your doorstep!
Holocaust Tolerance Trunks contain a variety of educational materials developed by an experienced team of educators to encourage a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the events leading up to World War II. Designed to fit each teacher’s needs, the Trunks are compilations of multi-media learning tools, resource books and literature, videos, maps, posters, artifact kits, primary sources, CD-Roms and curriculum units. Ideal for either Language Arts or Social Studies teachers, the three different Trunk styles are appropriate for either High School, Middle School or Spanish language users. The reservation fee for a 3-week loan interval is only $25, which is waived for teachers who attend our Trunk trainings. For an additional $25, Trunks will be delivered to your school.

We are fortunate to have the support of generous donors who have made these Trunks possible.
