Yeshiva University – Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration has published the second issue of Prism: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Holocaust Educators, dealing with the complex story of those who remained bystanders during the Holocaust.


The journal aims to address an expressed need from high school, college, and university educators for rigorous, academic, engaging, and classroom-useful materials that raised essential questions, that were grounded in sound history, psychology, and pedagogy, and that were appropriate for a wide variety of disciplines.


Each issue examines a specific topic through a variety of lenses, including education, history, literature, poetry, psychology and art. Experts from high schools, colleges, universities, museums and resource centers in the U.S. and Israel bring diverse perspectives highlighting particular facets of the issue at hand.


The editors welcome submissions from faculty and students; the themes for upcoming issues are:

  • Family Matters
  • The Second Generation and Beyond
  • The Holocaust and Heroism
  • The Kindertransport
