Holocaust Education Program
Lessons of the Past Teach Tolerance in the Present
The Holocaust Education Program (HEP) draws upon lessons of the past to implement methods of understanding diversity. While the Holocaust was an event that victimized Jews, its theme of evil is universal and identified with all humanity. Continued innovative programming is needed to build community tolerance, create cultural dialogues, and promote greater appreciation of diversity.
The Astor Judaica Library and Community Holocaust Memorial Garden provide ideal settings for this program.
The Holocaust Education Program has:
• developed a comprehensive HEP curriculum for students from elementary to high schools
• created more than 50 informational binders for San Diego schools and libraries, to assist educators
• provided HEP training to enable teachers to create multimedia lesson plans
• organized various literary and cultural outreach activities for all age groups
