Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators
 
July 29 - Aug. 1, 2014
Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multipurpose Learning Center

The Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators at Holocaust Museum Houston is a four-day program that moves beyond the general history of the Holocaust to explore the various dimensions and implications of the Holocaust and other genocides.

The institute, held each summer, provides substantive content and the opportunity to network with internationally known scholars and teachers from around the world. Working in the Museum’s exhibit space and classrooms, teachers grow in their understanding and refine their skills to teach about the history and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. Each year’s schedule includes one or two evening lectures.

The program is directed toward educators on a secondary or higher level, but university students and educators of all levels who have a specific interest in, and background knowledge of, genocide and the Holocaust are invited to apply. Seating is limited and is on a competitive basis. The cost to attend the program is $150, which includes lunch and materials for the four days. See this year's application form for information about early registration discounts.

The program will be held in the Avrohm I. Wiesenberg Classroom and in the Museum’s galleries, Morgan Family Center, Holocaust Museum Houston.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and is generously underwritten by the Max M. Kaplan Teacher Education Fund; the Lea K. Weems Memorial Scholarship Fund; Fund for Educators, in honor of Stefi Altman; and the Chevra Kadisha Holocaust Studies Scholarship Fund; with special thanks to United Airlines, the official airline of Holocaust Museum Houston. It is presented with appreciation to the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) for supporting this educator training program. Through recovering the assets of the victims of the Holocaust, the Claims Conference enables organizations around the world to provide education about the Shoah and to preserve the memory of those who perished.
