Holocaust Education


The Holocaust Education Committee of the Windsor Jewish Community Centre is committed to commemorating those lost in the holocaust and to honour those who survived. This Yom HaShoah commemoration takes place annually in the spring.


We also host the student forum for social justice, during this one-day event, 2 students from nearly every grade school in the region attend 5 workshops, which focus on various social justice issues in Canada and abroad.

Lessons Learned from the Holocaust

  • Reducing the Stigma of Mental Health
  • Poverty and Homelessness
  • The Environment
  • Experiential Learning Through the Arts

It is our hope that students selected for this forum will be involved in projects that foster social justice in their school community.
