    Registration is required to access each program via Zoom.

    Established in 2014 at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), the Conference for Holocaust Education Centers (CHEC) has created an engaged network among its current 48 Holocaust center partners.

    CHEC encourages participating centers to consider their goals for teacher professional development, the needs of their local communities, and how to integrate USHMM resources and approaches to support these goals.

     

    The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights is proud to partner with fellow CHEC partners, the Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation (PHRF) in Philadelphia, PA and with the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) in Milwaukee, WI, in an effort to bring Holocaust and genocide education to the public.
