"The most important part for me was learning that we all have this desire to essentially teach about a past genocide/Holocaust so that we can guide our students to be upstanders and eradicate injustice in our world today."

About Us

Centropa offers a web-based educational program designed for schools in Europe, North America and Israel.


We encourage teachers  to teach European-Jewish history in the 20th century in an interdisciplinary way, and we design our materials to be innovative,  interactive and international. 


Our goals

Although we have somewhat different goals with each group of teachers, our three universal goals are to:


- connect us all to the lands of Jewish heritage by creating programs about the entire 20th century, not only about the period of the Third Reich


- use these programs in innovative ways so that Holocaust education will have relevance everywhere


- to combat antisemitism and Holocaust denial by creating programs that students carry out themselves, and share with other students across borders, oceans, and ethnic divides
