Since 2013 (and in conjunction with Yad Vashem), the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand has sent between 25-30 New Zealand high school teachers every two years to attend an intensive 3-week study seminar at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Many seminar attendees consider it to be a “life-changing experience” to visit Jerusalem, meet with Holocaust survivors, and bring into their classroom lessons learnt from experts in the field of Holocaust education. The last Yad Vashem Seminar for New Zealand Educators was held in January 2019. Watch this space for details of the next one! Any questions please contact our Chief Executive Officer, Chris Harris. firstname.lastname@example.org
