A study commissioned in 2020 by Echoes and Reflections, a partnership program of the Anti-Defamation League, shows that students who received Holocaust education have more pluralistic attitudes and are more open to differing viewpoints, report a greater willingness to challenge intolerant behavior in others, and have a greater sense of social responsibility and civic efficacy if they watched survivor testimony as part of their experience.
To date, TOLI has provided professional development seminars to over 2,800 teachers in the US and Europe. The result has been to bring Holocaust and social justice education to over 450,000 students and their peers. TOLI’s outreach is growing every year, and we are recognized as one of the leading organizations in Holocaust and social justice education.
TOLI provides the kind of Holocaust education and human rights education that empowers teachers to have tough conversations with their students. They learn to challenge their students to be upstanders as opposed to bystanders and in that way change their communities and the world.
The world needs Holocaust and human rights education. The world needs TOLI.
