The Coming of Age curriculum is a project of the Museum of Jewish Heritage (New York) in collaboration with Yad LaYeled - The Ghetto Fighters’ Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Heritage Museum in Israel.

Publication:  The Role of Experiential Learning in Holocaust Education 

The paper starts with a brief description and analysis of Holocaust education in Israel as a case of teaching history. The role of experiential learning is
discussed, leading to the presentation of the "Journey to Poland", as a central element in teaching and learning about the Holocaust. Several evaluation studies of this journey are noted. Finally, the discussion offers some conclusions concerning the use of experiential learning in the teaching of history, its advantages, limitations and risks.  Co-authored with Miriam Ben-Peretz
