PASS HOLOCAUST MEMORY TO FUTURE GENERATIONS

Cory Weiss, World Jewish Congress

The interactive website, aboutholocaust.org, is now available in English and is expected to be launched in dozens of languages, including Chinese and Arabic, going forward. This unique platform is specifically dedicated to providing answers to frequently asked questions and common misconceptions about the Holocaust, and contains a range of simple content, including must-know facts, video testimonials of survivors, and the latest news updates about Holocaust educational programs and activities.

At the heart of the website is the Teach-A-Friend feature, which gives users the ability to ‘nominate’ a peer to receive automatic emails containing information and facts.

The World Jewish Congress and UNESCO have launched a Holocaust education website this month, geared at providing students, young adults, and others with essential information about the history of the Holocaust and its legacy.
