Virtual School Tour: Holocaust and Resistance

Available by reservation.

ADMISSION: Free for Bay Area K–12 school groups through the 2021–2022 academic year

The Jewish Family and Children's Services (JFCS) Holocaust Center and The CJM are working in partnership to offer a virtual version of our Holocaust and Resistance program for remote school groups. The program is designed for students in grades 7–12 who have some previous learning about the Holocaust, and integrates survivor testimony, history, art, and contemporary connections. The experience has been divided into a two-part program, with an optional third session for reflection that educators may choose to add. 

The experience has been divided into a two-part program: 

  1. A live, interactive guided tour of art, and historical materials related to the Holocaust, drawn from The CJM's current and past exhibitions. (approx. 45 mins) 
  2. An interactive learning session with a member of the JFCS William J. Lowenberg Speakers Bureau followed by a reflection session making connections between their testimony and the world today. (approx. two hours, with a break in the middle).  

Each session may be booked for a separate date and time. 

If you are only interested in booking a Speakers Bureau program for your class, please contact the JFCS Holocaust Center at
