A Note About the 2020 Summer Teachers’ Institute

As the spread of COVID-19 continues, we must prioritize the health and safety of our community. Therefore, the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is taking a cautionary approach and will no longer host a face-to-face Summer Teachers Institute in 2020.   In its place, Facing History and Ourselves is offering the online seminar version of The Holocaust and Human Behavior to educators, beginning in June 2020. The workshop’s content will be delivered in a self-directed online format over the course of 5 weeks. The course beginning in June is open to educators from across the country, building connections through online discussion forums.   The program is free for participants and eligible for Pennsylvania Act 48 continuing education credits.
