Teachers’ Use of Montreal Holocaust Museum’s Pedagogical Material Aiming at Primary School Students’ Engagement Through Human Stories

  • Cornélia Strickler
  • Sabrina Moisan
Part of the The Holocaust and its Contexts book series (HOLC)


In this chapter, Strickler and Moisan demonstrate the need for resources and training on Holocaust history in a province such as Quebec where Holocaust education is not compulsory. First they explore the links between the Quebec Education Program and the Montreal Holocaust Museum’s pedagogical approach, both aiming at the development of critical thinking, citizen reflection, pluralism and democratic education. Then, through the analysis of how the Montreal Holocaust Museum’s educational resources are being used by primary school teachers in Quebec, they explore present and future avenues to improve Holocaust education in classrooms.
