Holocaust Education Programming
CFJS Holocaust Education Programming
CFJS has created a national, coordinated, peer‐to‐peer Holocaust Education program intended to promote Holocaust and Genocide awareness,through student empowerment, creative nationwide projects and a new partnership with STAND Canada. This initiative is intended to guide students during Holocaust Education Week (HEW) and continue as a Holocaust awareness resource throughout the course of the school year.
CFJS has helped initiate a student-leading network to provide support for, and facilitate communication between, HEW organizers across the country. Student leaders have come together nationally to allow local ideas tobe shared nationally.
The CFJS video project is an initiative that encourages students to connect with local Holocaust survivors. This project gives students the opportunity to interview survivors, learning about their past experience and their lives today. The purpose of this project is to celebrate the lives of those who have survived – where they have been, who they are and what has shaped the people they are today. Students will be encouraged to capture the interviews on camera in order to create a log to be uploaded to the CFJS website. This online forum will serve as a testimonial, accessible to the public. This project is intended to encourage dialogue between generations, celebrating the survivors and keeping their stories alive. For more information, please email
