Standing Up in Uncertain Times: Rescuers in the Holocaust

Event details
Calendar   Workshops
Location Zoom
Date Tue, Feb 9, 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Duration   1h 30m

Centropa ( is a historical organization that works with  teachers to use our stories of 20th century Central European Jewish life to explore students' own stories, civic values, tolerance, and global citizenship. From 2000-2009, they asked elderly Jews in 15 European countries to tell them their entire life stories spanning the 20th century as they showed them their old family photographs. Centropa did not use video, or focus on the Holocaust, and they don't have a boxed curriculum. Teachers use our 22,000 old photographs, 1200 interviews, and short multimedia films to create the lessons they need for the students they teach—in history, ethics, geography, civics, foreign language, creative writing, English Language Arts, and film, art, and photography classes. Their materials cost nothing.

Holocaust Museum Houston ( is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors’ legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.
