Teacher Resources for Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day

Posted by on 4/28/2019 to Holocaust
Many schools and community organizations create programs to observe the gravity of the Holocaust and to educate and create awareness among future generations.Creating compelling programming for schools can pose a challenge, especially for children in younger grades who have not yet learned about the magnitude of the Holocaust. Children's picture books can be important tools for teaching about the Holocaust. Our books give children a first glimpse at history through unique lenses--modern cave exploration, collecting paper clips, a journey into space, and even from through perspective of a neighborhood cat. Kar-Ben has several free guides for teachers. Free and downloadable, these eSource guides provide pre- and post-reading questions, plus suggestions for activities that can be scaled for age appropriateness. 



Benno and the Night of Broken Glass
A neighborhood cat observes the changes in German and Jewish families in Berlin during the period leading up to Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. This cat's-eye view introduces the Holocaust to children in a gentle way that can open discussion of this period. Shop for this book now.

Six Million Paper Clips

At a middle school in a small, all white, all Protestant town in Tennessee, a special after-school class was started to teach the kids about the Holocaust, and the importance of tolerance. The students had a hard time imagining what six million was (the number of Jews the Nazis killed), so they decided to collect six million paperclips, a symbol used by the Norwegians to show solidarity with their Jewish neighbors during World War II.
