Yad Vashem – World Holocaust Remembrance Center

ww

The international school for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem was established to answer to the growing interest of teachers, educators, students, and people from the non-formal education system to learn and teach about the Holocaust. The unique approach of this school states that the Holocaust must be viewed not only as a mega-scale historical event, but as a historical phenomenon of significant educational value, which must be learned and taught as such.

The Ted Arison Family Foundation chose to support the program with a long-term 13-year grant, from 2006 to 2018, totaling $1,100,000, enabling it to train teachers from Israel’s geographic and social periphery, qualifying more than 2,500 teachers via thorough studies and preparation.
