“Teaching and learning about the Holocaust is an essential opportunity to inspire critical thinking, societal awareness, and personal growth. Yet this massive topic can also pose challenges to educators due to its traumatic nature, broad expanse, and intersection with challenging human dynamics including racism and antisemitism.” – International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)

Since the late 1990s, IHRA has been working trans-nationally with panels of experts to create standards for teaching the Holocaust. Toronto’s leading Holocaust educators come together for the first time to discuss how rooting their work in the  IHRA recommendations provides meaningful learning opportunities for all students. Join Jody Spiegel from the Azrieli’s Holocaust Survivor Memoir Program and incoming Chair of IHRA’s Education Working Group, Facing History and Ourselves’ Leora Schaefer, and Neuberger’s Dr. Carson Phillips for a special behind-the-scenes “shop-talk”. With an introduction from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Jennifer Ciardelli who chaired the IHRA committee that developed the IHRA recommendations. Moderated by Dara Solomon from the Neuberger.
