The theme of the 2012 Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference was Holocaust Education: Challenges for the future. Its purpose was to bring together well-known scholars who could share with conference participants their research and reflections about what the Holocaust has to teach students about the dangers of dictatorship and apathy in the face of prejudice. Its purpose also was to inform participants about the 1994 genocide in Rwanda so that teachers also can incorporate teaching about the terrible event into their curricula. The essays in this book are intended to educate and encourage students and others who may be in situations to see, judge, and act on behalf of those whose lives are in danger. Studying about the Holocaust should encourage the people to help others in need.
