About this event

The Holocaust Teachers of America Symposium elevates, empowers, and enlightens classroom teachers through general and break-out sessions led by Holocaust survivors or their descendants and experienced classroom teachers just like them to become advocates for academic integrity, democratic values, truth, historical accuracy, and compassionate communities in their schools.

The Annual Holocaust Teachers of America Symposium is a teacher created teacher led academic space where the participants gain priceless knowledge pertaining to the complex history of the Holocaust, 2000 years of antisemitism in Europe, the roles of imperialism, colonialism, nationalism, economics, and democracy on the sociopolitical changes in Europe and how individuals were affected by these changes. At the core of it all are raw historical facts, 100% applicable meaningful age appropriate lessons, and the support of interdisciplinary team teaching.

It is far more important to us to create a strong robust community of professional educators focused on bringing the respect and academic validity to the subject that it deserves than to have thousands of participants in one year. We seek to inspire, inform, and involve amazing English, History, and Art educators in grades 6-12 and provide the foundations for a scholarly community among secondary school educators centered around Interdisciplinary Holocaust & Human Rights Studies.

Are you a teacher of English (6-12), History/Social Studies (6-12), or Art (6-12) and want to learn how to better teach the Holocaust & Human Rights through interdisciplinary team teaching? Or do you want to improve and grow on what you are already doing? Then this symposium is for you.
