Materials for Educators

Marks JCH of Bensonhurst has provided additional educational presentations for the students of local Jewish schaools and other educational institution for more than 10 years. All educational materials were developed in collaboration with the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Prior to the actual workshop, a teacher will be supplied with pre-visit materials such as maps, Holocaust History terminology and a survivor’s life story outline. Using these materials, a teacher will be able to introduce students of the upcoming workshop, giving them highlights of the speakers’ historical backgrounds. The following materials were developed under guidance of the Museum of Jewish Heritage and could be downloaded in order to help prepare students for coming presentations.

Commemorating the Holocaust

In January 2000, 44 governments from around the world met in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, to discuss the importance of Holocaust education, remembrance and research. Many governments undertook to establish an annual Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). On January 24, 2005, the UN General Assembly commemorated the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. Following this session, a UN resolution was drafted to designate January 27 as the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. The resolution called for education programs on the Holocaust to help prevent genocide. It also rejected denials that the Holocaust occurred. On November 1, 2005, the assembly adopted this resolution so the day could be observed each year. It was first observed on January 27, 2006. The day also commemorates when the Soviet troops liberated the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland on January 27, 1945. It is hoped that through remembering these events, people will remember the Holocaust and prevent genocide.
