Today, young people’s knowledge of the Holocaust is limited by educators’ choices in planning their classroom curriculum. Although the mandate of “Never Again” has proved difficult to achieve, the lessons of the Holocaust - including the dangers of silence, the consequences of indifference, and the responsibility to protect the vulnerable - remain relevant and significant in the lives of youth. Through programs and curriculum, ADL helps educators bring these lessons to life for students. For more information, please contact us.
