To effectively educate students about the Holocaust, we want to provide teachers with the necessary resources to teach this subject in a sensitive, appropriate and informative way. We are committed to supporting Queensland educators to deliver meaningful and safe Holocaust learning experiences by providing free teaching resources, as well as professional development programs.

The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was a tragic event in history where 6 million Jewish people and 5 million others were persecuted, tortured and murdered by the Nazi regime during WW2. It is essential that students learn about the Holocaust, as it serves as a reminder of the horrors that can result from prejudice, discrimination and hate.
Our team is working with Holocaust education experts in Queensland, Victoria and across Australia to develop specialised and free resources for educators that align with the Australian Curriculum and Queensland teaching requirements.

We are excited to announce an upcoming Teacher & Head of Department Professional Development opportunity focusing on Holocaust Education.
This program is scheduled to take place during Term 4 of 2023, and Term 1 of 2024, offering enriching insights and resources to enhance your teaching curriculum.
Take your students on an unforgettable journey to discover the Holocaust with testimonies and artifacts from Queensland survivors.
Learn about their pre-war lives, the rise of Nazism, the harrowing experiences during round-ups and deportation into ghettos and camps, and the inspiring stories of liberation and rebuilding their lives after the war in a tour led by passionate and knowledgeable guides trained to deliver the best learning experience.
