About the presentation:

In New Jersey, Holocaust education has been mandated in our public schools since 1991. The New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education provides an extensive curriculum for educators to promote the study of the Holocaust and other genocides. Since 1996, the commission has sponsored a summer seminar trip to some of Europe’s most infamous Holocaust sites. Michelle was one of 30 educators who in 2014 visited Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, and the Netherlands with Holocaust survivor Maud Dahme and a film crew that created a documentary demonstrating one of the many ways New Jersey educators learn to teach the important lessons of the Holocaust, and inspire their students to respect others, and become “upstanders” and not “onlookers”.

About the Presenter:

Michelle Myers is a retired Teacher of French and Holocaust and Genocide Studies and holds a Master of Education in School Leadership. Michelle was recognized as Educator of the Year, and received numerous teaching awards and international study grants to travel to Peru, China, Israel, and sites of the Holocaust. Her partnership with The Esther Raab Holocaust Museum and Goodwin Education Center as a teacher and Steering Committee Board Member resulted in a myriad of student fundraising activities, programs, and scholarships. Michelle currently serves as a Board Member on the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education. 


This programming is made possible with the support from Jewish Federation of Northern NJ and Bergen County Division of Senior Services.
