Samantha Chilton, Senior Associate
PA Holocaust Education Council
The mission of the PA Holocaust Education Council is to provide instructional guidance, support and resources for educators who teach the history of the Holocaust and its relevance to contemporary issues across the state of Pennsylvania.
PHEC invites you to participate in the Clara H. Isaacman Memorial Trunk Project. PHEC has developed trunks (High School and Middle School) of Holocaust education materials - - reference materials, classroom sets of books, videos, DVDs, fiction books and non-fiction memoirs and diaries. Teacher guides are included when available. The cost of each trunk is $1,500; PHEC can match funds up to $750. However, no school should dismiss this project if the funds are not available.
PHEC also has funds available through the Mary S. Costanza Memorial Program that helps subsidize various Holocaust education activities led by teachers in PA - - trips to the US Memorial Museum in DC or professional development courses.
For more information on how to join PHEC ($25/annual dues; $5/for students with valid ID) or for information about its programs, please go to www.phec.org.
