International Holocaust Remembrance Day Virtual Classroom

International Holocaust Remembrance Day Virtual Classroom

This special professional-development event offers educators a valuable opportunity to discover new approaches to teaching about the Holocaust and the many lessons it offers on human rights, racism, democratic values, citizenship and genocide. Designed for professional development of teachers of Grades 9–12 and college- or CEGEP-level courses, this Virtual Classroom hosted by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), will enable educators to interact with Holocaust education experts, view NFB films and access innovative learning resources.

Teachers who register for this virtual classroom will receive a free resource package from The Azrieli Foundation's Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program in English or French. This includes: five Holocaust survivor memoirs, a DVD and thematic lesson questions.
