The mission of the Commissioner’s Task Force on Holocaust Education is to assist school district professionals and support staff in preparation for teaching the history of the Holocaust which will lead to:

  • An investigation of human behavior
  • An understanding of the ramifications of prejudice, racism, and stereotyping
  • An examination of what it means to be a responsible and respectful person for the purposes of encouraging tolerance of diversity in a pluralistic society and for nurturing and protecting democratic values and institutions by offering intensive training programs, curriculum materials, resources, and sustained support.
