School Groups

We offer a full range of specialized and interactive programmes, which can be facilitated either at the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre or at the school itself. All programme topics relate to Human Rights’ awareness and draw on lessons from the Holocaust and the Rwandan Genocide, which specifically address the Grade 9 Social Science, as well as Grade 11 History and Life Orientation curricula and promote cross-curricular teaching opportunities more generally.

The programmes are suitable to a range of Grades from Grade 5 through to Grade 12. The Centre can accommodate up to 200 students at a time, and is open every weekday for school programmes.

In addition we have Holocaust and Rwandan Survivors who are willing to share their testimonies with learners. We can also arrange for guest speakers to address school assemblies to mark particular events.

Our programmes are flexible and we can adapt the content and times scheduled for each session to fit in with the particular needs of each school. Programmes vary, but are generally between 1-4 hours long. Download our Programme Menu 2017.
