About the program:

By utilising Holocaust history as a framework, teachers can engage students in discussion of the related issues of racism, intolerance and persecution that continue to beset our world. The General Program can be adapted to focus on key syllabus areas as requested by the class teacher. Students will learn about the experience of Jews and other victims of Nazi persecution through oral testimony, displays and artefacts.
