We help you teach the Holocaust. Whether you’ve been teaching the subject for years or are incorporating it into your lessons for the first time, we provide the tools and support you need.
We believe in the power of engaging directly with the voices of Holocaust survivors. Not only do we distribute our memoirs free of charge to teachers and students, we also provide expertly designed classroom activities that foster deep learning experiences. Our digital resource and in-school presentations by survivor authors offer students new ways to connect with the stories of Holocaust survivors and understand this complex topic.
The Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program staff is available to work with educators across the country who are interested in using survivor memoirs to teach their students about the Holocaust. Our educational resources and programming are free of charge and are available in both French and English.
See a complete listing of our titles and order books. Books, including ebooks and PDFs, are free of charge for Canadian students, school and university libraries, educators, post-secondary instructors and academic researchers.
