Virtual Resources

During these uncertain times, and until it is once again safe to do so, the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) has suspended all in-person programming.

We hope that in the meantime, while you and your loved ones are safe at home, you take the opportunity to engage with the many online resources which we have curated here, some created by HERC and some shared from other organizations around the world, for teaching and learning about the Holocaust.
