I'm appalled by this, so please share this thread of resources for folks to educate themselves (1/9)
Follow @AuschwitzMuseum and @HolocaustMuseum immediately. Their feeds are an incredible daily reminder and resource. (2/9)
Also recommend the "Learn" section on the Holocaust Museum's website. (3/9)

A survey like this reminds me that not everyone was required to read "Night" by Elie Wiesel in high school like I was, so start there and read these:

Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Survival in Auschwitz: If This Is a Man by Primo Levi
Maus by Art Spiegelman
(4/9)
Watch these:

Schindler's List
Band of Brothers Episode 9
Conspiracy (HBO)
Denial

(Yes, these are cinematic dramatizations, but they're all widely praised for their historical accuracy.) (5/9)
(Side note on Denial: It doesn't unpack the antagonist's anti-Semitism as much as I would've like to see, but I recommend it to show that hate doesn't always come from people carrying tiki torches and wearing swastikas. It can come from anywhere and look acceptable to many.)
Listen to survivors talk about their experiences. (6/9)

Call out the people that say it's a myth as the anti-Semites they are.

It happened and forever changed an entire people.

(7/9)
Know that just a handful of states require Holocaust education. (8/9)

And finally understand that reading a book or watching a movie or even listening to a survivor's story isn't really enough. Learning about and reckoning with the Holocaust has to be an active and ongoing process to ensure that we don't let anything like it happen again. (9/9)
