After three years, the Holocaust Education Centre is thrilled to return to in person programming as we present Neuberger Holocaust Education Week 2022. This year’s HEW will showcase our exemplary work as leaders in the field of Holocaust education throughout the decades and provide a glimpse of what is in store with the opening of new Toronto Holocaust Museum in spring 2023. Join us to explore the future of Holocaust education, today.
For more than 40 years, Neuberger Holocaust Education Week has provided high impact Holocaust education programming across the GTA to students, intercultural groups and the general public. Neuberger HEW is recognized by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) as a best practice in the field.
This year’s event will be better than ever, featuring a range of programs that include live performances, lectures, panels, and book and film premieres.
Now, more than ever, learning about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance is a crucial tool in countering rising antisemitism and other forms of hate.
Program highlights include author of The Hitler Conspiracies Sir Richard Evans, a moving film tribute to Rabbi Erwin Schild, Holocaust survivor and one of the country’s most beloved and influential rabbis, a specialized Dialogue for Descendants program, award-winning films presented in partnership with the Toronto Jewish Film Festival, the Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program launch of their first audiobook featuring film, TV and theatre actor Jake Epstein and so much more!
