The DHGC recognises the great influence and opportunity educators have, to bring about change through education. For this reason we have partnered with the KwaZulu-Natal Education Department since 2009 to run workshops across KZN to help equip and empower educators to teach the subject of the Holocaust in the classroom in line with the National Curriculum requirements.

The workshops support the development of a human rights culture through creating a classroom environment that encourages learning and compassion. Educator workshops are designed to develop the educator’s knowledge of the Holocaust and to give them support through helpful classroom methodologies as well as providing the socio-historical background to this history.


The DHGC hopes to provide educators with tools and resources. An educators manual for teaching the Holocaust is available at the Centre, please call 031 368 6833. We also host educator workshops online, recordings of our webinars here.

“Thank you for facilitating a most appropriate and stimulating workshop. Andre van Zyl, one of our junior history teachers, returned from the workshop filled with creative and inspiring ideas on how best to teach the Holocaust. Thank you for the impact that your workshop has had on him and ultimately on all the young who will benefit from his future teaching.”
