P 6121 Holocaust Education

Holocaust education will be taught during a week designated by the District. Such instructional program will include age-appropriate instruction to students from grades 6-12. Holocaust Instruction will include:

  1. Provision of a historical understanding of the Holocaust;
  2. Provision of context for discussion of how and why the Holocaust occurred;
  3. Use of materials developed and supported by the Holocaust Education Awareness Commission, the United States Holocaust Memorial Mission, the St. Louis Kaplan Holocaust Museum, and by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (“DESE").

For purposes of this Policy, “Holocaust” is defined as the systemic state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its allies and collaborators during the period from 1933 through 1945. The District recognizes the second week of April as “Holocaust Education Week.”
