The Institute for Holocaust Education strives to provide quality Holocaust education programming across Nebraska and beyond. We offer resources and training for educators, as well as events for students and the general public. 

Help to ensure the IHE can continue to provide education to our community by donating today.

Upcoming programs

The IHE hosts and partners with many local organizations to bring high-quality and innovative programs to Omaha and Nebraska. Take a peek at what we have to offer: 


Join the IHE and area schools for the 7th annual Week of Understanding. Several local Holocaust survivors, Dr. Fred Kader, Bea Karp, Milt Kleinberg, Kitty Williams, Tom Jaeger, and Marcel Kahn will be joined by several out-of-town speakers (Marion Blumenthal Lazan of New York, Robbie Waisman of Vancouver, Magda Brown and Anges Schwartz of Skokie, IL). Local Liberator, Col. Roy Long will also speak during the week. Sign your students up today to participate in the 2017 Week of Understanding! Sign up, here!


The IHE organizes Holocaust remembrance events each year, in Lincoln and in Omaha. The commemorations invite all Nebraskans to learn about and remember the tragedy of the Holocaust, the millions who perished, and the human actions that allowed it to occur. We also celebrate the lives and subsequent generations of Holocaust survivors who settled in Nebraska. All are cordially invited to join us in marking this solemn annual occasion with communal readings, prayers, and candle lighting. Learn more.



June 25-26, 2017 at the Benedictine Retreat Center in Schuyler, NE!

This conference will feature guest speakers, and will include a variety of advanced topics related to the Holocaust. We are excited to host teachers from across the state who have already received some Holocaust education training and have implemented it in the classroom. Come together to further study and share your experiences, resources, and best practices with others!
