Education for Holocaust Remembrance

The United Nations has urged Member States to develop educational programmes to instill the memory of the tragedy of the Holocaust in future generations to prevent genocide from occurring again. UNESCO acts as a resource to promote these learning materials and to provide a platform for institutions, teachers, students and interested parties to access resources on education for Holocaust remembrance.
