Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators
 
July 10 -12, 2019
The Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education

The Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators at Holocaust Museum Houston is typically a four-day program that moves beyond the general history of the Holocaust to explore the various dimensions and implications of the Holocaust and other genocides. 

The 2019 Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute will be comprised of three days of presentations by scholars, workshops, and activities that will introduce participants to the history of the Holocaust and genocide, as well as the new Museum. 

Our new museum, opening in June 2019, features galleries that serve as a roadmap for the 2019 Institute. Participants will spend time in our new Holocaust Gallery. They will explore an exhibit about diaries kept by young people during times of war and genocide; they will be introduced to the stunning artwork of survivor Samuel Bak, in the  Samuel Bak Gallery and Education Center; and spend time in a gallery dedicated to human rights, genocide and calls to action as they learn about how people respond to issues of human rights.  

The institute, held each summer, provides substantive content and the opportunity to network with internationally known scholars and educators. Working in the Museum’s exhibit spaces and classrooms, teachers grow in their understanding and refine their skills to teach about the history and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. Educators are introduced and immersed in a range of engaging media and resources. Each year’s schedule includes one or two evening lectures.

The program is directed toward educators on a secondary or higher level, but university students and educators of all levels who have a specific interest in, and background knowledge of genocide and the Holocaust are invited to apply. Seating is limited and is on a competitive basis. The cost to attend the program is $175, which includes lunch and materials for the three days. See this year's application form for information about early registration discounts.

The program will be held in The Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education and in the Museum’s galleries, at , Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus located at 5401 Caroline Street Houston, Texas 77004.
