January 27: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly resolution 60/7 on 1 November 2005 to reaffirm “that the Holocaust, which resulted in the murder of one third of the Jewish people along with countless members of other minorities, will forever be a warning to all people of the dangers of hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice.”

Over twenty years ago, the Florida Center for Instructional Technology created the Teacher’s Guide to the Holocaust website to support Holocaust education. The twentieth-century technologies used in the site have long since ceased to work properly, but the site’s thousands of documents and photographs can still be accessed. The links below connect directly to the sections of content that are still valuable classroom resources.
