The Center for Holocaust Education thrives as a dynamic, interactive and engaging program division within the EVJCC, aiming to continue to teach this generation and future generations the importance of acceptance and peace. 

Holocaust-Education-AZ

Our events encourage collaboration with a greater understanding while honoring and respecting individual histories and traditions.  Programs include presentations, guest speakers, exhibits, a Holocaust education curriculum for schools, an annual Yom Hashoah program and Generations After, a program for children and grandchildren of survivors. 

The Center for Holocaust Education continues to reach people through programs in conjunction with the City of Chandler, Maricopa Community Colleges and the Phoenix Holocaust Association.

Auschwitz Live Virtual Tour

Auschwitz-virtual-live-tour

An Auschwitz Virtual Live Tour transports visitors to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp for a unique learning experience, using historical footage, Holocaust survivor testimonies and modern animation combined with virtual reality tools to teach about the horrors that happened in the world’s most infamous concentration camp. 

The tours are live, led by expert tour guides in Poland who can answer questions and interact with participants. This tour is the most faithful representation of an in-person visit to the Auschwitz memorial site. 

Group tours are currently being scheduled. Visit holocausteducation.center/auschwitzvirtualtour.
