Last May, over 4000 students and educators in Calgary (and surrounding areas) Edmonton, and Lethbridge, were reached through Virtual Symposium .
In the face of the pandemic, the Annual Holocaust Education Symposium was swiftly adapted to a virtual format. This didn't stop over four thousand students and educators from being reached through Symposium in May of 2021. Due to high demand, Calgary Jewish Federation's Holocaust education department will be hosting an additional virtual Holocaust Education Symposium this November 2021. In addition to hearing from a Historian from Mount Royal University, students will have the opportunity to watch a historical documentary and hear from a Holocaust Survivor. Keep an eye out for more information and registration forms coming soon.
