The 2018 Holocaust Scholarship Program
Canadian Society for Yad Vashem awarded 15 scholarships to top educators from various schools across the country to participate in the 2018 CSYV Holocaust Scholarship Program. Participants completed the first part of the program, attending the International in class Seminar in Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Scholarship recipients had rare opportunities to learn from leading experts in Holocaust studies, discuss with educators from around the world, discover significant research and pedagogical materials in Holocaust education, hear first-hand experiences of the Shoah from Holocaust survivors, and more. Back at their institutions, graduates of our program are enthusiastic to share with their students and colleagues what they have learned. They are now equipped to teach the next generation of Canadians about the Holocaust, thereby promoting the values of tolerance and inclusion in our country.
