Request a Speaker

The ability to bring speakers to audiences in Georgia is an important aspect of the Commission’s support of Holocaust education. 

Guidelines for Teaching About the Holocaust

 Teaching Holocaust history demands a high level of sensitivity and keen awareness of the complexity of the subject matter. The following guidelines from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, while reflecting approaches appropriate for effective teaching in general, are particularly relevant to Holocaust education.

The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust structures their resources and programs according to these guidelines.
