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 IHRA’s network of experts includes representatives from the world’s foremost institutions which specialize in teaching about the Holocaust, who have issued a range of guidelines for educators and educational policymakers to consider when developing effective curricula and educational materials. These guidelines are continually updated and expanded upon to reflect pedagogical trends, technological changes and new historical findings.
Our educational documents are available in over 25 languages. We are working to get all our translations online and will have them available shortly.
