The Learning Platform

Designed to support educators learning and teaching about the Holocaust, deepen your knowledge about essential topics and access classroom-ready materials and sample lesson plans on The Learning Platform for Holocaust Education and Antisemitism. Learn about teaching approaches and explore new Canadian resources through modules exploring a key topic, teaching approach, or new resource. Whether you are an experienced Holocaust educator looking for new lesson ideas or a teacher new to Holocaust education, we have resources to support you.

The Museum's acclaimed Brady Resource Kit introduces learners to some of the experiences of George Brady through the use of primary source documents and first-person accounts. A finalist for a Heritage Toronto award in Public History, the Brady Resource Kit is an inquiry-based learning activity suitable for Grades 6 and higher.


Hatepedia is an online database and resource centre developed by the Toronto Holocaust Museum’s Online Hate Research and Education Project, built with original research to provide educators, parents, lawmakers, and researchers with tools to identify and counter the proliferation of online hate.

Brady Resource Kit

Learn about the Holocaust and its aftermath through the story of one family’s experiences. George Brady, brother of Hana Brady (Hana’s Suitcase), takes us on a journey from his childhood in Czechoslovakia, to his postwar years in Canada through personal artifacts, testimony clips, pictures and documents.

In Search of Better Days

Our newest online resource, this specially curated digital exhibition showcases the journeys of seven Holocaust survivors coming to Canada after the Holocaust, highlighting themes such as Canadian identity and immigration. Through exploration and discovery, students connect these themes to modern day issues about the ideal of Canada as a multicultural nation and provide insights into how they can become active citizens of this civil society.

In Their Own Words

Our first-ever online educational resource offers an opportunity for learners to explore the experiences of Canadian Holocaust survivors through thematic testimony clips. The excerpts featured were derived from a Canada-wide project to digitize, preserve and make accessible the testimonies of Holocaust survivors. More than 1200 oral histories are preserved in the Canadian Collection in the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive.

The Unknowable

There is so much left to discover about the Holocaust. Explore our online exhibition and resource that uncovers the lesser-known narratives through unique objects and artifacts. The oral history excerpts featured here are curated from over 1200 Holocaust survivor testimonies recorded in Canada. The experiences are diverse and represent just a fraction of Holocaust survivor personal testimonies.

Portraits in Courage

Discover unique stories and the fates of four individuals during the Holocaust through primary source documents, archival images and oral testimony excerpts. This inquiry-based learning activity for middle and high school students provokes thought about complex circumstances that individuals encountered during one of history’s darkest periods.

Also featured is the digital version of the Museum's exhibit The Unknowable. Accompanying each object are two short videos from experts in the field explaining the story behind the item as well as ideas for incorporating it into classroom learning.
