The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies supports educators through workshops and seminars, facilitated by leading experts in Holocaust and genocide education. Through these workshops we develop and distribute a myriad of resources for teaching age-appropriate lessons about the Holocaust and genocide.

"I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for the workshop. I gained knowledge of the topics, as well as teaching strategies. It was also very momentous because I had never had the opportunity to meet a survivor and hear part of their story.”

“I have taken 5+ workshops through the UofM, many on the topic of genocide. Each one has been unique and full of great resources and amazing presenters."
