- return to class with primary sources for teaching about Sephardic Jews;
- hear from experienced teachers how they successfully use Centropa materials in their classes;

Resources can be used to teach about Holocaust history, social studies, ELA, art, foreign language, filmmaking, photography, and civics.
Centropa, a historical institute, based in Vienna, interviewed 1,200 elderly Jews living in 15 European countries. We didn’t use video or focus on the Holocaust. We asked our respondents to tell us their entirelife stories spanning the 20th c. as they showed us their old family photographs, which we digitized.
Holocaust Museum LA is the first survivor-founded and oldest Holocaust museum in the United States. The Museum teaches students and visitors to think critically about the lessons of the Holocaust and its social relevance today through customized tours, artifact-rich exhibitions, creative educational programs, and intergenerational conversations with survivors. Museum admission is free for students from anywhere across the globe.
