Echoes and & Reflections Partnership

Echoes & Reflections, a partnership program of ADL, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem, is a premier source for Holocaust education professional development and dynamic content that empowers teachers and students to question the past and impact the future. The Museum has had an ongoing relationship with Echoes & Reflections to deliver their training programs in the North Texas-Oklahoma region to enhance teachers’ skills and provide additional resources to teach about the Holocaust.

In 2024, the Museum strengthened this partnership by training our education team as Echoes & Reflections facilitators. This allows the Museum to incorporate this premier Holocaust education professional development into existing or new trainings with North Texas and Oklahoma school districts and TEA regions.
