Resources for Holocaust Education Week

The Florida Holocaust Museum offers a plethora of resources to Florida teachers as they are planning their activities for Holocaust Education Week. All the resources are free to schools across the state. With any questions, contact our Education Department at education@thefhm.org.

 

Teacher Training

On-demand taped workshops: Many of our teacher trainings are taped and educators across the state can watch them at their convenience through our online library of workshop recordings. You can find more information on The FHM’s website. After watching each workshop, educators receive a certificate of completion.

 

Teaching Trunks

Offered in both actual and virtual formats, the dynamic teaching trunk curriculum is designed to accommodate the needs of one class or a team of teachers. Traditional teaching trunks can be shipped to any school in Florida at no cost – for more information click here. The audiobooks and e-books from our Virtual teaching Trunk can be checked out by teachers and students on their devices or accessed on a smartboard in the classroom at no cost – for more information follow this link.

 

Conversations with a Survivor

Educators can schedule a virtual meeting with a Survivor or a second-generation speaker (an adult child of a Holocaust Survivor). To book a speaker, place a request online.

 

Museum Tours

Live or virtual tours of the Museum bring the historical and educational resources and the visual experience of the Museum’s permanent exhibition to students and educators across the state. The virtual tour can be accessed on The FHM’s website. You can also book a docent-led virtual tour at no cost.

 

Traveling Exhibitions

For teachers who are introducing Holocaust history to their students for the first time or for more advanced studies, the “Witness to History” exhibition features stories of Holocaust survivors who live in Florida. This exhibition is accompanied by a Teacher’s Guide and can be accessed online or brought to a school at no cost.
