In efforts to meet the needs and representation of the community, The Boniuk Center’s Spanish Outreach and Latin American Initiatives focus creates bridges between the Houston Latino communities and Holocaust Museum Houston.
These initiatives include outreach to bilingual and dual language school programs; creating educational workshops and events for teachers, parents and community leaders; and working with local and national organizations dedicated to serving Latinos.
In efforts to outreach into underserved communities in the Greater Houston area, Holocaust Museum Houston has developed a one-day weekend workshop for students in upper elementary through high school. The program includes organizations and social justice advocates from the community to work with students in collaboration with the museum’s Education Department. In spring of 2018, Holocaust Museum Houston hosted two successful outreach events for East End schools that provided students with the opportunity to visit the museum and participate in a workshop on becoming Upstanders in their communities.
Through collaboration with institutions and scholars throughout Latin America, dedicated to human rights, genocide, and Holocaust education, as well as to contemporary challenges, Holocaust Museum Houston will develop curriculum and resources that will be accessible for educators throughout the United States and Latin America.
If your school or organization is interested in participating in an outreach event, please contact Michelle Tovar at email@example.com
Holocaust Museum Houston, in collaboration with institutions throughout Latin America, provides informational links and resources for students and educators to better understand how the Holocaust, genocide, human rights and social justice are linked to the Latin American experience.
