Holocaust Education for Jewish Families

Most Holocaust education programs emphasize how Jewish people died, not how they lived and responded to persecution. This unique program examines the Holocaust through the lens of the Four Rs by focusing on the stories of:

Jewish Resourcefulness: Despite threats of reprisal and death, Jews opened underground schools, libraries, soup kitchens, and infirmaries.

Jewish Resistance: The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising was the first urban revolt in occupied Europe. It lasted more than a month, longer than the defense of many European countries, and inspired other Jewish uprisings.

Jewish Rescue: Jews knowingly put themselves in danger to support and save other Jews. Poet Hannah Senesh parachuted into occupied Yugoslavia to rescue Hungarian Jews slated for deportation to Auschwitz.

Jewish Resilience: Despite losing everything, including their families and all worldly possessions, Holocaust survivors put down roots in new lands, pursued education, mastered professions, opened businesses, and raised families.

The cost of the program is $18.00 per participating student, and parents and grandparents are encouraged to attend at no additional cost. The program fee includes museum admission and two additional sessions at the synagogue featuring Breman survivor speakers.

The program is taught over three Sundays during your synagogue's regular religious school hours.

Session I: At The Breman

Students and their families are introduced to the Holocaust through a docent-led tour, instruction on the Four Rs, and family discussion.

Session II: At the Synagogue

Students are introduced to stories of Holocaust heroes and hear a first-hand account from a Holocaust survivor.

Session III: At the Synagogue

Students engage in interactive activities on the countries affected by the Holocaust and hear a survivor give their eyewitness testimony.
