Yad Vashem is offering a unique seminar for English speaking educators from around the world to study at the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, Israel between July 1 – July 19, 2012. The focus of the seminar is on teaching the Shoah and anti-Semitism.


Since 1981 thousands of educators from all over the world have completed the International Seminar –Teaching the Shoah and Antisemitism at the International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem.


More than half a century has passed since the almost total destruction of European Jewry. New research has been published based on information previously unavailable. New materials have been produced to help us learn and teach about the everyday life of the Jewish people and the Jewish communities that were destroyed.


By attending this seminar at Yad Vashem you will be able to take advantage of everything that is unique to this exceptional place on Har Hazikaron – The Mount of Remembrance – in Jerusalem. In addition to exploring our museums, the Valley of Communities and other sites at Yad Vashem, participants will be able to access the wide range of materials located in our archives, library, Hall of Names and the Pedagogic Resource Center. You will also meet and have the opportunity to discuss teaching the Holocaust with educators from all over the world.


This seminar is accredited by the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and a participant can receive up to four MA credits from HU.


Seton Hill University, Greensburg, PA will award three MA credits. Either option is contingent upon the completion of a required work post seminar and payment to the respective institution.
