Our Humanity Is Bound Together: Discussing the Holocaust

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945. We honor the memory of the 6 million Jews and the millions of Roma, Sinti, Slavs, disabled persons, LGBTQ+ individuals, political dissidents and others who were murdered in the Holocaust. And we encourage learning from the survivors as we reflect on the significance of this history.

Our newest article emphasizes the importance of Holocaust education and survivor testimony and shares strategies for incorporating into student learning One Survivor Remembers, an award-winning documentary chronicling the story of Holocaust survivor Gerda Weissmann Klein. We offer these resources to support discussing the Holocaust with young people.
