28th Annual Educators' Conference on the Holocaust

  • ​Burton Barr Central Library 1221 N Central Ave Phoenix, AZ 85004 United States (map)

4:15 pm - 9:00 pm at the Burton Barr Central Library
$20 per person includes dinner buffet, registration, and materials

Every year the BJE devotes a day for teachers in Arizona schools to explore the Holocaust and its lessons for today and beyond. Over the years, hundreds of educators became informed and inspired to teach the Holocaust in their classrooms.

With each passing year, the generation of survivors becomes fewer and fewer. As teachers of our youth, you have the opportunity to speak for those who no longer can — to become their voice.

With knowledge, your classroom can provide a space for a meaningful and challenging course on the Holocaust. The Holocaust or Shoah, as a watershed event in human history, is a benchmark for the study of unchecked evil. Through the lessons of the Holocaust, your students will begin to understand how silence, indifference to suffering, hatred of the other and abuse of power can lead to genocide.

In partnership with the Phoenix Holocaust Survivors’ Association and Generations After, Arizona Council for the Social Studies, Arizona Council for History Education, Arizona State University School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies, Maricopa County Community Colleges, Northern Arizona University Martin-Springer Institute, and University of Arizona Center for Judaic Studies.
