Through the Sam Gross Summer Institute on the History of the Holocaust, Human Rights, and Genocide Studies, teachers investigate the history of the Holocaust and broaden their knowledge about current genocides and continued episodes of man’s inhumanity to man during the 20th and 21st centuries. Educators get equipped to return to their classrooms with the knowledge and pedagogical resources to teach in a manner that leads to an investigation of the ramifications of prejudice, racism and stereotyping. They are inspired to promote diversity in a pluralistic society.


This section provides samples of the final projects prepared during the week of the Summer Institute by its participants. These are educators from different types of schools and grade levels. Their projects show how they would like to use in their classrooms the knowledge gained during the program as well as the resources they have explored with their instructors.
