Just for Educators
 

The education programs of Holocaust Museum Houston can enable teachers to help their students to:

  • develop an awareness of racism, stereotyping and prejudice;
  • become knowledgeable, sensitive and responsive to the consequences of apathy;
  • put the Holocaust and other genocides into historical perspective;
  • understand the systematic genocidal plan of the “Final Solution;”
  • appreciate the many forms of resistance;
  • relate the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides to the contemporary world situations;
  • instill a recognition of individual response to society; and
  • recognize the importance of remembrance by honoring survivors and memorializing those that were lost.
