One of the foundational missions of the Stan Greenspon Center is to educate and inform all people about the complex history of the Holocaust and how that history continues to affect our world today. We work diligently to provide teacher education, school programs, and community events to engage all ages in this topic.
Courses by Echoes and Reflections (sponsored by the Anti Defamation League, Yad Vashem and the USC Shoah Foundation) are free of charge. Echoes & Reflections empowers middle and high school educators with dynamic classroom materials and professional development. Offered and listed on their website is a powerfully-packed schedule of free year-round webinars, online courses, and in-person programs and other resources to help educators gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to effectively teach students about the holocaust. For information, see echoesandreflections.org.
Next Generations is a nonprofit organization founded in 2004 by children of Holocaust Survivors, educators and others who care about social injustice with the vision of empowering future generations to be the messenger for all Survivors and keep their authentic voices alive.
NEXT GENERATIONS is excited to present their fall showcase of events – all on the digital Zoom platform.
All programs are being offered at no cost to you. However, you must register individually for each program. Space is limited, so please RSVP soon.
