About Holocaust

The World Jewish Congress (WJC) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), established about holocaust.org with the goal of providing young people with essential information about the history of the Holocaust and its legacy.

The interactive online tool includes a range of content — facts that all students should know, video testimonies of survivors, and the latest news updates about Holocaust educational programs and activities — all designed to address misinformation that circulates across social media and other internet forums.

At the heart of aboutholocaust.org is the “Ask a question” tool, which enables users to ask specific questions about the Holocaust. If the site does not contain information that the user is looking for, his or her question will be submitted to a Holocaust educator who will provide an answer.
