Holocaust education is mandated in New Jersey for all schools, public, private and parochial. We help teachers fulfill this mandate. Holocaust education can be targeted to specific groups, imparting specific messages:
The Holocaust provides a context in which students can explore the use and abuse of power and the role of individuals, organizations, and governments in creating a democratic, pluralistic society with civil rights for all.
The Holocaust affords a means of teaching the importance of using media, technology, and science for the benefit, rather than the detriment, of society.
Holocaust education stresses the consequences of a breakdown in the ethical, moral, theological, political, and philosophical paradigms in which society operates.
Holocaust education is an antidote to increasing racism and discrimination. It is a most effective and compelling way to reduce prejudice and hatred. The principle focus of Holocaust education is teaching tolerance, diversity, and respect.
