The Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education was established to prepare school district professionals and support staff to implement Florida Statute 1003:42: Required Instruction of the Holocaust, by providing professional learning opportunities. The Center provides direct services to educators in Southeastern Florida by teaching the history of the Holocaust to combat prejudice, hatred and indifference; to apply the lessons of the Holocaust to understand the consequences of prejudice and bigotry; to identify behaviors that discriminate against people; to know when and how we on behalf of others whether we know them or not; and to become active citizens who are able to uphold the dignity of all people. 

*NEW!: The Nazi Olympics - Thursday, February 11 |  4 - 7 PM
Presented in collaboration with United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: For two weeks in August 1936, Adolf Hitler's Nazi dictatorship camouflaged its racist, militaristic character while hosting the Summer Olympics. Minimizing its antisemitic agenda and plans for territorial expansion, the regime exploited the Games to impress many foreign spectators and journalists with an image of a peaceful, tolerant Germany. Zoom webinar: tiny.cc/NaziOlympics
