The New Jersey Department of Holocaust Education has graciously agreed to work with Voices and New York State in writing Holocaust and other genocide curriculum. New Jersey has the most complete K-12 Holocaust curriculum in the Country. Way to go Jersey!
We are making a major push to establish complete Holocaust curriculum in New York State and then to have that curriculum shared with public schools throughout the United States.
We welcome your participation in achieving this needed goal. Educate to Stop the Hate
