HMTC educates about the Holocaust, remembers its victims, and teaches how to act on its lessons.  Through innovative programs, we promote resistance to prejudice, advocate respect for every human being, and foster understanding, inclusion, and engaged citizenship.

Student programs include:

  • Interactive & customizable tours of our museum, focusing on topics such as children during the  Holocaust, bias and antisemitism, and immigration
  • Testimony from Holocaust Survivors, Liberators and children of Survivors—at HMTC, at schools, through videoconferences
  • Travelling artifacts exhibit & resource trunks [link to flyers—attached as PDFs]
  • Interactive student workshops on historical and current events, and tolerance and anti-bias

Our programs can help schools meet state and national standards.  View our standards document here.
