HMH – Online lessons, videos and virtual tours for educators, parents and students during virus shutdown
Friday, Mar. 27, 2020 – Friday, Apr. 24, 2020
Since closing its doors March 16 to help keep the community from the spread of COVID-19, Holocaust Museum Houston’s (HMH) team has constructed virtual learning resources with organized access to more than 100 Survivor testimonies, 80 destroyed communities, a plethora of library resources, book lists, blogs, taped lectures, lesson plans and family activities, with new additions each week.
“During this unprecedented time our work continues and will be needed long after this crisis is behind us,” said Dr. Kelly J. Zúñiga, CEO of Holocaust Museum Houston. “We remain committed to our mission to educate the public about the Holocaust and Human Rights by creating and sharing online learning opportunities to those looking for at-home assistance.”
Educators, parents, students and supporters can visit hmh.org/resources for online teaching tools and activities for all ages. Virtual exhibition tours, storytimes, and various Facebook Live events are in development and will be featured over the coming weeks.
