US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Learn, Teach and Research About the Holocaust

Learn: “The Holocaust was the systematic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its allies and collaborators. The US Holocaust Memorial Museum teaches millions of people each year about the dangers of unchecked hatred and the need to prevent genocide.”


Teach: “Explore Museum suggestions for where to begin teaching about the Holocaust. We include resources for teaching with limited class time, for English/Language Arts, and for History classes.”


Genocide prevention: “The US Holocaust Memorial Museum teaches that the Holocaust was preventable and that by heeding warning signs and taking early action, individuals and governments can save lives. With this knowledge, the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide works to do for the victims of genocide today what the world failed to do for the Jews of Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.”
