Us and Them: Discrimination During the Holocaust and Today

Us and Them: Discrimination During the Holocaust and Today


Expand your classroom with our traveling outreach programs. No permission slips or buses needed— our Museums on the Go! educators come to you! In addition to our standard program offerings, our Museums on the Go! team can create a customized outreach visit for your troop meeting, science fair, or community night.

Through hands-on activities and primary source interpretation, students are immersed in the experiences of local Holocaust survivors who settled in the Springfield area after World War II while examining historic cases of discrimination, identifying upstanders vs. bystanders, and tracking the progression of hate from individual acts of prejudice to genocide.
