Holocaust Education and Experiential Learning
The Azrieli Foundation works to foster engagement with Holocaust history by supporting innovative programs, projects and educational tools. We are proud to be the leading donor to major Holocaust education initiatives and to support local organizations from coast to coast to coast.
On a global scale, our relationships with trusted international organizations, including Yad Vashem: The World Holocaust Center and the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, help us maintain our support of best practices in Holocaust education and commemoration.
We support access to academic initiatives and resources that help scholars deepen their knowledge of the Holocaust, promoting the next generation of educators and experts.
Recognized by scholars from diverse fields, the award-winning memoirs published by the Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program have become an invaluable source of survivor narratives. The memoirs are used in post-secondary institutions across Canada and beyond for both teaching and scholarly research.
Our mission is to connect and nurture potential, wherever it exists, with the resources and the wisdom necessary to open the doors to a better world — one individual at a time.
