Adaptation of our Pedagogical Tools

This multifaceted project brings together the pedagogical expertise of the Montreal Holocaust Museum, teachers and their associations, Holocaust education centres and various Canadian communities and organizations. It will improve educational support for the teaching of the Holocaust and human rights in Canada, offering all materials bilingually and free of charge.

New Teaching Guides

The pedagogical guide “United Against Genocide: Understand, Question, Prevent” officially launches today, as an effective tool to accompany both the virtual and travelling versions of the exhibition. The travelling exhibition is on display at the Montreal Holocaust Museum until August 17, 2018.

Later this year, a tool for Canadian teachers speaking to issues of contemporary rights will be developed with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
