Holocaust Remembrance Week

The second annual Texas Holocaust Remembrance Week will take place from January 25 - January 29, 2021. SB 1828 instructs the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission to develop or approve materials for a statewide Holocaust Remembrance Week, starting in the 2019-2020 school year. At the THGC’s suggestion, the Governor’s Office has chosen the week of January 27th as the date for Remembrance Week. (International Holocaust Remembrance Day is January 27, which is the date that Auschwitz was “liberated” by Allied troops.)

Below are some teacher resources to help teach this topic. If you are interested in collaborating on a lesson or project on the Holocaust, please let me know.
