Shoah Teaching Alternatives for Jewish Educators (STAJE) and the Advanced Institute are professional development programs for teachers in Jewish schools and in public (and parochial) schools, respectively. We acknowledge in appreciation the Jewish Conference of Material Claims Against Germany for supporting this educational program. Through recovering the assets of the victims of the Holocaust the Claims Conference enables organizations around the world to provide education about the Shoah and to preserve the memory of those who perished.

Stories Survive: A Plaintiff And Witness In The Bruno Dey Trial
Last week a German court convicted Bruno Dey for helping the Nazis murder thousands of people while he served as a concentration camp guard more than 75 years ago, in what might be one of the last verdicts to be handed down to a living participant in the Holocaust. Ben Cohen, the grandson of Judy Meisel, one of the trial’s co-plaintiffs witnesses, wrote an opinion piece for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that he allowed us to share on our blog.
