Holocaust Education Day

On a regular basis, the Holocaust Studies Program sponsors a Holocaust Education Day for local area middle and high school teachers, free of charge, on the MTSU campus. Events include talks by teachers, community leaders, and survivors as well as multi-media presentations, such as workshops, virtual tours, or film screenings and discussions. This free annual Education Day is also open to the entire MTSU community and the local public. It is co-sponsored by the College of Education, the Tennessee Holocaust Commission, and other groups and departments on and off campus that vary by year.
