The Baltimore Jewish Council and The Jewish Museum of Maryland are accepting student applications for the high school program, Lessons of the Shoah. This is a program of interfaith Study, Dialogue and Commemoration, using the Shoah and its lessons as a starting point in order to promote tolerance, understanding and respect between students of the Roman Catholic and Jewish faith communities, as well as, the whole of society. Included with lessons of the Holocaust, the course will also focus on contemporary genocides (e.g. Darfur) and the necessity for understanding and response. Mandatory team projects, designed to emphasize a social justice response, will be assigned.

Funding for the 2010-2011 Lessons of the Shoah will be provided by PAJA (Polish / American / Jewish Alliance for Youth Action, Inc.) through Paulette Pollack in memory of her brother, Dennis Misler, founder of PAJA. The curriculum will devote special attention to the Righteous Gentiles from Poland.
