Holocaust Museum Houston's Silverman Latin American Institute will bring together 6th-12th grade educators from Latin America and the United States to study the Holocaust, human rights, social justice, and how to implement this history into their classroom curriculum. Working together between a number of countries, participants will be able to create networks that will strengthen educational collaborations. Once accepted to this prestigious Fellowship, the 2023 Silverman Fellows will attend a four–day in person institute hosted at Holocaust Museum Houston designed to immerse them in historical and pedagogical content. Through interactive sessions led by historians, museum educators, and activists, Silverman Fellows will deepen their knowledge of and receive resources to support Holocaust, human rights, and social justice education in their classrooms. The Silverman Latin American Institute will be accessible in English and Spanish by interpretation.

Holocaust Museum Houston is currently accepting applications from US and Latin American educators who teach in middle or high school in the following subjects: English/language arts, history, social studies, art (visual and music). Applications from pre-service teachers who plan to teach middle or high school students in these subject areas will also be accepted. Application and recommendation letters are due Friday, September 9, 2022.
