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.

South Carolina Voices:
Lessons from the Holocaust

Thanks to a grant from the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust, ETV created a forum on the Holocaust to provide teachers access to a variety of resources when teaching their students about this tragic chapter from human history.

Available now on the forum is South Carolina: Lessons from the Holocaust. This curriculum package is made up of a teacher's guide and interviews with South Carolinians who survived the Holocaust and those who liberated the concentration camps or witnessed the atrocities that took place at them.
