The International School for Holocaust Studies

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


More than forty educators from across the United States participated in a special seminar at the International School for Holocaust Studies, July 15-21, 2007. The week-long Echoes and Reflections Summer Institute, organized in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, sought to enhance and supplement the seminar participants’ understanding of key content in Echoes and Reflections via the Yad Vashem museums, world-renowned researchers, and pedagogical experts. Echoes and Reflections is a multimedia curriculum on the Holocaust jointly developed by the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education, and Yad Vashem. Since its launch in July, 2005, several thousand teachers have been trained on how to use this resource material in their classrooms. For more information on this resource, see: www.echoesandreflections.org.

Since the beginning of 2007, the staff of the International School for Holocaust Studies has conducted workshops and organized Holocaust-related educational activities in 16 different countries to date.
