The International School for Holocaust Studies

e-Newsletter for Holocaust Educators

Welcome to the fifth issue of Teaching the Legacy, the e-newsletter of the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem. This issue focuses on January 27th, the date recently recognized by the United Nations as an international day of commemoration to honor Holocaust victims, and legislated as Holocaust Remembrance Day in eighteen countries. The main article is an interview conducted with Dr. Doron Avraham on the ICHEIC Program for Holocaust Education in Europe at Yad Vashem. This issue contains two lesson plans, for lower and higher grades, on the subject of children in the Holocaust. The e-newsletter also includes a section of book reviews, as well as updates on recent events and new services in the “What’s New” sections. We hope you will find this newsletter of interest and we look forward to your feedback.
