The Cohen Center provides and supports meaningful and accurate Holocaust education for grades 5 through 12 by providing an annual professional development workshop series, in-service faculty training, and curriculum consultation without charge to accredited schools. Tom White, the coordinator of Educational Outreach is available to present on a variety of topics and coordinates and supports teacher initiatives.
We are recognized as one of the "Centers of Excellence" in Holocaust education by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous.
Our biennial residential international Summer Institute is endorsed by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Graduates of the Institute become Cohen Center Fellows and become qualified to attend the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous' Summer Institute and summer study trip in Europe.
In 2006 the New Hampshire Board of Education adopted the Cohen Center's recommendation to include the Holocaust as a suggested topic of study. Teachers may now cite standard WH: 8:1.3 in order to incorporate Holocaust studies into their curriculum.
