Mission Statement

The mission of the Missouri Holocaust Education and Awareness Commission is to promote implementation of the Holocaust and awareness programs in Missouri in order to encourage understanding of the Holocaust and discourage bigotry.

The Holocaust is defined as the systematic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its allies and collaborators during the period from 1933 through 1945.  Millions of others were also murdered.

Education

With the new mandate to teach Holocaust education in all Missouri schools by the 2025-26 school year, the Missouri Holocaust Education Awareness Commission is working with the Department of Elementary and Secondary education to create a curriculum framework of instruction and identify resources and effective teaching strategies.

News
