DISTANCE LEARNING

Through videoconferencing, we are able to serve schools throughout the United States and the world. Each presentation stresses the importance of understanding the Holocaust and its impact on individual human lives. Survivor testimony is a powerful tool for humanizing history. These programs have a profound impact despite the geographical distance between participants.
