On Yom HaShoah, Learn About Holocaust With These Top Online Resources

The entrance to the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.

April 7, 2021

One meaningful way to commemorate Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day, is to engage in reflective self-education about the Nazi genocide of the Jews. 

With all of the virtual resources available online, information on the Holocaust has never been more accessible. 

Yet, even with survivors of the Nazi atrocities still among us, studies have found a shocking lack of knowledge about the Holocaust around the world today.

Half of American millenials, for example, cannot name a single one of the thousands of Nazi concentration camps and ghettos that existed.

Education is one of our primary missions at the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM), and we have gathered for you below links to a selection of useful assets — including online courses, lesson plans, film and photo collections, and virtual museum tours, among other resources — to learn more about the worst crime in himan history. Only by knowing the past can we prevent future tragedies. 

Take time on this Yom HaShoah to do your part in ensuring never again means never again!
