Training Overview

Overcome Holocaust disinformation among your students. Discover engaging new ways to teach about this catastrophe.

In January, the United Nations adopted a resolution condemning the increasing disinformation about Holocaust. It expressed concern about “the growing prevalence of Holocaust denial or distortion through the use of information and communications technologies.” Your students are severely affected by online fiction as active consumers of social media.

As you continue to develop your curriculum for the remainder of this school year, now is the time to overcome Holocaust disinformation with facts. You can incorporate opportunities to refocus students’ attention on reality.

International surveys reveal that young people have a shocking ignorance about the Holocaust, the people who caused it, and its impact. You need to convey these essential historical details.
