South Carolina Council on the Holocaust

“The work that the SC Council on the Holocaust does is so important for our students in South Carolina. Having a chance to discuss and reflect on the past gives students the tools to be better citizens for our future.”

The South Carolina Council on the Holocaust will sponsor its biennial Travel/Study Tour to Poland beginning Sunday, June 18 through Monday June 26, 2017. Cities to visit will be Warsaw, Lublin and Krakow while traveling as a group in a deluxe motorcoach. Death camps, work camps, memorials and museums are on the itinerary. 

The historical drama of the Holocaust is of special interest to students, teachers, religious leaders and many people whose families may have originated in Poland. The Tour is open to the general public. Financial assistance is offered to the first 10 qualified and certified South Carolina public or private school teachers. Teachers must be working in a SC public or private school or holding a contract for the 2017-19 school year. Graduate credit is possible. The Council's mission is to encourage and support Holocaust education.
