Join our group for teachers on Facebook where we share free pedagogical tools, exclusive educational news, relevant articles and discussions about tips and challenges in teaching about the Holocaust.
As our mission states, the Montreal Holocaust Museum educates people of all ages and backgrounds about the Holocaust, while sensitizing the public to the universal perils of antisemitism, racism, hatred and indifference. Therefore, teaching the history of the Holocaust and human rights is a crucial aspect of our programming.
Purpose of our group for teachers
- To share our educational resources and exclusive offers
- To encourage networking among teachers to overcome common challenges when teaching about the Holocaust and human rights
- To offer a private platform where teachers can share resources, tools and ideas. If you share your lesson plans or tips, only members of the group will have access!

We appreciate and answer honest questions about the complexity of the Holocaust history, but messages that disseminate misleading or historically inaccurate information will be removed. If you violate the rules of conduct, your content will be rejected and your account may be suspended or blocked. The Montreal Holocaust Museum reserves the right at any time not to open a forum for a given subject, to close a forum without notice and to refuse to publish any content.
