Holocaust Learning Trunk Project


The Holocaust Learning Trunk Project is sponsored by the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Education. It is supported by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. and the Georgia Foundation for Public Education.

 

About the Project

The project provides trunks full of educational materials throughout the state. The trunks are only available for use by middle schools. There is no cost to house or access these trunks.

The contents provide an interdisciplinary supplement to curriculum already in place. The resources assist educators in fulfilling the State's Standards of Excellence.

How it Works

The trunks are filled and distributed by the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust.

The trunks are housed by Regional Educational Service Agencies, school districts, and middle schools.

Educators request a trunk loan from their local host agency. Find the trunk closest to you.

At the end of each school year, each host agency completes a Host Report Tracking Log and submits it online.

About the Trunks

Each trunk was decorated by students in metro-Atlanta. Trunk decorating allows students to express the lessons of the Holocaust through art. Each trunk has a story. No two trunk designs are alike.

Some trunks were launched in a special presentation with a Holocaust speaker.
