Since 2013 (and in conjunction with Yad Vashem), the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand has sent between 25-30 New Zealand high school teachers every two years to attend an intensive 3-week study seminar at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

Many seminar attendees consider it to be a “life-changing experience” to visit Jerusalem, meet with Holocaust survivors, and bring into their classroom lessons learnt from experts in the field of Holocaust education.
