16th Annual Day of Learning

2018 marks the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” when the Nazis and their supporters destroyed thousands of Jewish synagogues and businesses, and attacked many Jewish citizens. In commemoration of Kristallnacht, the theme for this year’s Day of Learning focused on breaking points in history and standing up against hate.

At the Day of Learning, students (grades 7-12) and educators from all public and private schools throughout California are invited to gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide in order to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in the future.
