The South Carolina Council on the Holocaust was established to develop an educational program to prevent future atrocities similar to the systematic program of genocide of six million Jews and others by the Nazis. This program is designed to honor the survivors of the Holocaust and their descendants and the South Carolinians and their descendants who participated in the liberation of the concentration camps. The Council plans annual observances of the Holocaust and maintains a Holocaust Virtual Library as a digital information resource.     

Understanding and Teaching The Holocaust

film festival

July 13-18, 2014

This weeklong seminar teaches the skills needed to help students understand the root causes of genocide in the modern world, the ease with which it can happen, and the courage to stand up against it. There will be flexibility in the pedagogy allowing teachers to use the Holocaust as a vehicle/theme to teach Common Core mandated standards/skills, using a multitude of primary sources.
