International Holocaust Remembrance Day Virtual Classroom

International Holocaust Remembrance Day Virtual Classroom

This professional development event offered 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. It was designed for professional development of teachers of Grades 9-12 or CEGEP-level courses. The virtual classroom was hosted by the National Film Board of Canada in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
