Florida Department of Education press release, "Commissioner Brogan Unveils New CD-ROM, 'A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust.'"

This resource has been produced to assist Florida's teachers in meeting the Florida State mandate for Holocaust education:

The history of the Holocaust (1933-1945), the systematic, planned annihilation of European Jews and other groups by Nazi Germany, a watershed event in the history of humanity, to be taught in a manner that leads to an investigation of human behavior, an understanding of the ramifications of prejudice, racism, and stereotyping, and an examination of what it means to be a responsible and respectful person, for the purposes of encouraging tolerance of diversity in a pluralistic society and for nurturing and protecting democratic values and institutions.
