Teaching Holocaust Remembrance
Each year on January 27 the world observes International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and its counterpart, Yom Hashoah, takes place every spring. However, teaching about the Holocaust and equipping students with the tools to debunk disinformation around its history are important subjects year-round.
