As the Florida Holocaust Museum points out, “History has shown that there is an uptick in prejudice and bigotry during destabilizing events. It is critical right now to teach about the consequences of unchecked hatred, and the inherent worth and dignity of people of all races and cultures.”

The Museum’s education resources are available online, including

  • the art of Holocaust survivor and fabric artist Esther Nisenthal Krinitz
  • Ann Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
  • Farewell to Manzanar, Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston shares the story of her time spent in the Manzanar internment camp from 1942 to 1945.
