U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) stimulates citizens to examine and confront hatred and to promote human dignity. The extensive archives, programs, educational outreach, and events are designed not only to teach history, but to promote thought about the continuing need for vigilance in preserving democratic values and individual freedom.

For Teachers includes an online workshop for teaching the Holocaust and several exemplary lessons for middle and high school educators with video, text, and handouts, as well as additional classroom and community educational resources. An Online Teacher Workshop: Teaching About the Holocaust includes video segments that anchor all Museum professional development presentations.

For Students offers a narrative introduction to the Holocaust and points students to supplementary materials, exhibits, and activities.

Online Exhibitions extend the reach of the museum archives and educational materials.

Collections and Archives offers a wealth of multimedia materials, digitized documents, photographs, and interactive maps.
