The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme seeks to remind the world of the lessons to be learnt from the Holocaust in order to help to prevent future acts of genocide.
The Outreach Programme was created at the request of the United Nations General Assembly in its resolution 60/7, adopted on 1 November 2005. The United Nations Department of Public Information (UN DPI) has taken the lead in creating a broad initiative, designed to encourage the development by United Nations Member States of educational curricula on the subject of the Holocaust, and to mobilize civil society for education and awareness.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) is an inter-governmental organization established in 1998, with the in order to mobilize and coordinate political and social leaders’ support for Holocaust education, remembrance, and research at national and international levels.
The IHRA website offers some carefully designed useful resources and guidelines for educators under the education section.
