When studying the Holocaust, students are engaging with complicated moral questions, many of which do not come with simple answers. Education about the Shoah encourages us to reflect on how individuals could or should act in society.
While the Holocaust provides important lessons from the past to learn for the present and the future, it significantly brings to the forefront human rights and social justice issues.
