USHMM Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Conference for Educators

The National Institute for Holocaust Education of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is pleased to announce the 2012 annual Arthur and Rochelle Belfer National Conference for Educators.  The conference is funded by a grant from the Belfer Foundation.

The 2012 program will be held in two sessions.  A session for English language arts educators will be held July 8-10, 2012.  A session for social studies educators will be held July 11-13, 2012.  Both sessions will be at the Museum.  Educators who teach a subject outside these two disciplines may pick which session to attend that better suits their subject matter.

A limited number of scholarships are available. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is June 22, 2012.

Middle and high school educators with less than five years of experience teaching about the Holocaust are invited to apply to attend the Belfer National Conference.  Educators in the content areas of foreign language, journalism, and other content areas are encouraged to attend.  Community college faculty are also eligible to apply.
