Sponsored by the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego
Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust has been awarded a generous grant by the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego for the continuation of the Museum’s Highways to History program. This program is designed to support teachers and students in San Diego County in gaining access to the educational resources of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust through a teacher training and field trips.
Through this program, the Museum will provide ten San Diego County teachers with a one-day, on-site training on November 6th and substitute teachers to cover for them in the classroom. Following the training, the teachers will bring their classes to the Museum for tours and discussions with Holocaust survivors. The costs of transportation and substitute teachers are covered.
Participants will receive copies of the Museum’s Teacher Guide. The Teacher Guide was specifically designed with the Museum’s structure and content in mind and provides Holocaust history, suggestions for pre- and post-visit activities, and information on the Museum building and collections.
