Holocaust Education Program
Lessons of the Past Teach Tolerance in the Present
The Holocaust Education Program is Generously Supported by the Viterbi Family Foundation
The Holocaust Education Program (HEP) draws upon lessons of the past to implement methods of appreciating diversity. While the Holocaust was an event that victimized Jews, its evil is universal. Innovative programming helps in building tolerance, creating dialogues, and promoting a 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 curriculum for students from elementary to high schools.
• Created more than 50 informational binders to assist educators.
• Provided training to teachers, to help them create multimedia lesson plans.
• Organized many literary and cultural outreach activities for all age groups.

Defiant Requiem: The Film
Watch a video here describing the project...
This film depicts a memorial concert which reawakens the story of an
artistic uprising in the Nazi concentration camp, Terezin, where a
chorus of 150 inmates confronts the Nazis face-to-face - and sings
to them what they dare not say.
When it comes to Holocaust documentaries, some people think they
have heard it all. But until you have heard the music made by the
survivors at Terezin, you haven't heard a thing.
Special Guest: Murry Sidlin, Maestro
President and Founder of The Defiant Requiem Foundation
