The mission of the Sandra Bornstein Holocaust Education Center (SBHEC) is to provide RI schools historically accurate, high quality resources and information.
In addition to textual resources and films, the Center’s most important source is witness testimony. While there are still survivors who are willing and able to travel to schools to share their experiences with Rhode Island’s school children, the Center also has an extensive video/DVD catalogue of witness testimony. SBHEC encourages educators to explore the web site. All of the materials are here for you to use. We also encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have, and to invite us into your classrooms.
This Resource Page provides information to help educators enhance their instruction with this difficult but necessary subject. Resources for instruction include our archival materials. In addition these resources, we offer lesson plans written by some of the top Holocaust educators in the state, as well as an index of other trustworthy sources such as the USC Shoah Foundation and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).
