Teaching the Legacy: e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators
(January, 2007)


On 29 January 2007, the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) will organize the second annual observance of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, with a ceremony from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm in the General Assembly Hall at United Nations Headquarters. DPI will also launch a new website and resource for UN Member States, educators and NGOs titled, "Electronic Notes for Speakers". The site, developed for the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme by Yad Vashem and the Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education, provides survivor testimony and information materials that will equip speakers with the tools needed to conduct effective briefings on the Holocaust, and lessons to be learned from it. This website will also be accessed from Yad Vashem's website after the launch.
