Upcoming Workshops


The Alexander Lebenstein Teacher Education Institute assists educators with their understanding of the Holocaust and genocide. Sessions focus on historical background and pedagogy which link to the Virginia Standards of Learning requirements. TEI is offered in partnership with Longwood University and is funded through generous teacher sponsorships.

A professor in a bright green dress is standing in front of the TEI classroom and teaching a packed class of educators.

  • A guided Museum tour
  • Presentation and discussion of the role of law enforcement during the Holocaust
