    The problems of prejudice, discrimination, and violence motivated by hate are ever present in today's society. Psychologists, educators, and community leaders have called for the creation and implementation of programs that attempt to prevent and combat acts of racism and prejudice. Many such programs use the lessons of the Holocaust to teach about the consequences of hate. Although many such programs exist, few empirical studies have focused on the impact of these programs on those who participate. The current study evaluated the impact of the Holocaust Museum Houston Curriculum Trunk Program, a prevention/intervention program that uses the Holocaust as a backdrop. The program's impact on students' Holocaust knowledge, attitudes, and their understanding of the notion of responsibility were assessed. Both quantitative and qualitative assessment tools were utilized. Results suggested that students who participated in the current program displayed an increase in Holocaust knowledge and more culturally tolerant attitudes as a result of training. In addition, students retained greater knowledge and more tolerant attitudes when revisited following a 4-month delay. Recommendations and implications of the current study are also discussed.
