Holocaust Museum Houston
School and Community Outreach Program


What is possible beyond the walls of HMH?

Holocaust Museum Houston will provide a visiting educator to present in school and community settings. Services will be provided free of charge due to generous grants we received to create the Educator in Motion program. Presentation can be selected from the following choices:

Program One – “Images of the Holocaust”

This program is best suited for students with limited knowledge of the Holocaust. It is appropriate for grades 5 –12. Using photographs, the session follows a chronological order, taking students from the rise of the Nazi Party to the end of World War II.

Program Two – “Personal Narratives of the Holocaust”

This program is best suited for students who have an understanding of the core facts of the Holocaust. It is appropriate for grades 6 –12. The program uses film, text resources, survivor testimony and diary readings.

Program Three – “The Possibility of Individual Choice: Upstanders during the Holocaust”

This program is best suited for students who have an understanding of the core facts of the Holocaust. It is appropriate for grades 5 – 12. Students learn about rescuersn whose actions led to saving the lives of survivors who settled in the Houston area. Students are asked to consider the implications of this topic as they consider who they think can be upstanders today.

"All Behaviors Count" examines the five forms of social cruelty—taunting, bullying, rumoring, ganging up and exclusion from the group. Through the "All Behaviors Count" curriculum, students learn skills to identifyeach of the forms of social cruelty through Holocaust survivor testimony and contemporary commercials that highlight the forms of social cruelty in a variety of ways, and respond to social cruelty as empowered upstanders.
