The Midwest Center for Holocaust Education teaches the history of the Holocaust, applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide. We serve Kansas, western Missouri and the Midwest.
MCHE is proud to announce our partnership with Union Station in providing programmatic and educational support for the exhibition Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away. This groundbreaking exhibition brings together more than 700 original objects and 400 photographs from over 20 institutions and museums around the world.
More than 20 presentations and events for the public and educators are scheduled through January 2022.
MCHE’s mission calls upon us to utilize the lessons of the Holocaust to combat genocide. Through this partnership with the University of Missouri-Kansas City, we present public history workshops focused on other genocides. Graduate students from Dr. Andrew Bergerson’s World History Colloquium will present case studies in genocide, lead participants in a discussion about each study, and highlight the insights that these genocides might provide about the Holocaust.
This panel discussion explores the perspectives of survivors, liberators, the military command staff, and President Truman on liberation and the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust.
Panelist are: Jessica Rockhold, Midwest Center for Holocaust Education; Jeff Nelson, Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum; Mark Adams, Truman Presidential Library and Museum.
Additional resources provided by USHMM to begin understanding the scope of the Holocaust.
Our mission is to teach the history of the Holocaust, applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide.
