Teaching about the Holocaust is challenging under any circumstances. But now, we recognize it’s even harder for you to rethink how to connect with students remotely.
The Neuberger is hard at work developing online specialized programs for teachers and students to further their knowledge about the Holocaust. These offerings include Educator PD, and online specialized student programming.
Your support of online Holocaust education teaching and learning will empower students of today to view this important history through the lens of critical thinking and emphasize how the lessons of the past can encourage a better future.
Important Update from the Neuberger: In light of the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community and abroad, UJA is consulting with Toronto Public Health and taking reasonable precautions to protect the health of our community, public, volunteers and staff. This extends to all those involved in our programming and travel tours.
As a result, we have unfortunately made the difficult decision to postpone the Holocaust Educators’ Study Tour until summer 2021, out of concern for the wellbeing of the participants.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to running it in the summer of 2021.
The Neuberger is excited to announce the 2020 Study Tour for Holocaust Educators! The 2020 Study Tour is a unique educational program that brings teachers, teacher candidates and faculty to sites of Jewish memory in Austria and Poland. It is an intense, rigorous program that combines academic with reflective and experiential modes of learning.
The program is limited to 24 teacher participants and is led by professional Holocaust educators and, where possible, a Holocaust survivor. Past study tours have taken place in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2013 and 2016.
By visiting historic sites of destruction (Auschwitz-Birkenau, Majdanek and Mauthausen), of Jewish culture (Lublin Yeshiva) and of rescue participants actively encounter living history. These encounters are supplemented with pedagogical methods and expertise to enable participants to teach about the Holocaust in new and meaningful ways when they return to their classrooms.
Flight schedule: July 5 departure from Toronto for July 6th arrival in Vienna; July 15 departure from Warsaw return to Toronto.

The Neuberger is excited to announce our new educational offerings at our annual PD seminar. For the 2019-2020 school year, the Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre introduces new interactive educational resources, in addition to the Brady Resource Kit, which has been nominated for the Public History Award presented annually by Heritage Toronto.
These programs exemplify the Neuberger’s student-centered approach to learning about the Holocaust using a multilayered approach. The Neuberger approach challenges students to become history detectives, discovering for themselves the significance and meaning found in primary source materials such as archival photographs and documents, oral history recordings, and replica artefacts.
In this (full day, seminar, the Neuberger Education Team will take participants on a learning journey to discover for themselves how Holocaust education is preparing for the future.
Also featuring special guest presenter, Dr. Pia Schoelnberger (Federal Chancellery of Austria, Ministry of Arts and Culture), an international expert on Holocaust-era art restitution and memorialization.
