Recommendations for Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) | 2019

Each IHRA Member Country is committed to encouraging the study of the Holocaust in all its dimensions. However, teaching about this complex and sensitive topic appropriately – and adapting it to the context of differing national educational systems – requires specialist knowledge. The newly-updated IHRA Recommendations for Teaching and Learning about the Holocaust were launched on 4 December 2019. These Recommendations are crafted to help educators with fact-based and educationally sound techniques for teaching the complex and nuanced history of the Holocaust. Education experts from 34 Member Countries worked together to create these Recommendations, which combine their years of specialist knowledge with the latest research in the field in an easy-to-use format.

See the recommendations in English, German, Polish, French (other languages are also available on the website).
