The 2017 CSYV Holocaust Scholarship Program
In July 2017 a selected group of 16 qualified educators from various high schools and educational institutions across Canada, participated in the annual CSYV Holocaust Scholarship Program and attended the International Seminar for Educators on the Holocaust at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Over the course of the 19-day seminar, the educators had an experience that impacted them both personally and professionally. Our program graduates learn from world renowned experts in Holocaust studies on how to best teach about the Holocaust while introducing students to the topic, ensuring a safe learning environment with the provision of age and level appropriate materials to aid the learning process.
