The Resource Centre is based in Shau Kei Wan and was officially inaugurated in May 2012 by Chairman of Yad Vashem Rabbi Israel Meir Lau. We have a growing catalogue of books, DVDs, teaching resources and other materials that will assist students and educators alike, to further their knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to use these for your own education purposes or reproduction.

SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAM
A vital aspect of our work is outreach to schools in Hong Kong
We offer screenings of specially selected films for schools, from the Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival. This is a novel and effective way of educating students about the Holocaust and encouraging further enquiry into the subject.We can also provide a speaker to introduce the film and run a Q and A session afterwards.
We are also working to assist schools in fulfilling their OLE commitments to the NSS Curriculum, and can provide speakers who can talk to the students about the Holocaust and tolerance. We have a Child Holocaust Survivor on our Board who is able to address students about his experiences.
The HKHTC is developing various travelling exhibitions that can be booked by schools. We have a generic exhibition about the Holocaust, as well as ones on specific themes such as Righteous Gentile – Raul Wallenberg,The Jews of Shanghai and about the life and work of Janusz Korczak. Many of these will be bilingual.
Our next project is to develop lesson plans and teachers guides on Holocaust related themes, as they fit into the Hong Kong Government schools curriculum, as well as IB and other school curricula.
Please contact us at email@example.com and we can tailor an exhibition or lesson plan to fit your requirements.
