Teaching the Legacy: e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators
(March, 2006)


Suggestions for Holocaust Memorial Days
On January 27 in Brussels, Belgium, Yad Vashem and the Organization for Strategic Cooperation in Europe launched suggestions geared for educators on how to prepare Holocaust Memorial Day. These suggestions, including numerous examples from OSCE member states, have been developed by Yad Vashem and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights in an effort to help support educators who are interested in developing programs, ceremonies and lesson plans connected with Holocaust Remembrance Days in their respective countries. This provisional version of the guidelines, including various examples and educational strategies, is now available in English, French, Flemish, Italian, and Russian at the bottom of this page. Additional languages of this document are currently being prepared.
