Partial scholarships available for NJEA members

The New Jersey Commission on Holocaust/Genocide Education coordinates an annual summer seminar in Europe for New Jersey educators to visit the sites of the Holocaust. The 2020 program will run from July 14 to 29, visiting Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Holland. Maud Dahme, a member of the commission who survived the Holocaust as a hidden child, leads the tour.

Through an NJEA grant, partial scholarships are provided to NJEA members; however, all others are invited to participate. At this time, the estimated out-of-pocket cost of the trip will be $4,000 for NJEA members and $7,700 for all others who are interested in participating.

NJEA members who participate are expected use what they learn on the tour to teach about the Holocaust and other genocides in their schools, their communities, and their local and county associations. Note that the trip will involve substantial walking and not all sites are handicapped accessible.
