Education is our focus
The IHE is the central location in Nebraska for disseminating accurate information about the Holocaust. Each year, the Institute for Holocaust Education works with approximately 200 educators and provides several teacher workshops in Omaha and elsewhere in Nebraska. The IHE creates and distributes age-appropriate resources for teaching the Holocaust that span multiple areas of study including social studies, literature, and art.
After attending workshops, teachers leave with curricula and lesson plans, as well as guidelines for appropriate teaching of the Holocaust - and a network of like-minded professionals.
