Stuck at home? Introducing Virtual Holocaust Education Resources

Much has changed since we were last in touch. With the onset of the international coronavirus pandemic, the day-to-day routine for many of us has changed dramatically, and much of what is in store remains unknown. But, one thing is for sure: we will need to make major adjustments to the ways in which we live, interact, and learn.

There’s no doubt that unprecedented times present a whole host of new challenges, but we see compelling opportunities for progress within those challenges. With many of us upending our schedules and spending more time at home, we have the gift of time to dive deeper into our learning independently, with our children, and, virtually, yet together.

To that end, the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation is curating a weekly series of educational content – all available through our newsletter, and soon, to be posted on our website. We will be sharing articles and books to read, clips and movies to watch, and actions to take to guide your learning about the Holocaust, contemporary antisemitism, and what it means to be an upstanding citizen in an increasingly uncertain world.
