Within the Kansas City metro area*:
Speakers are available to make one hour in-school presentations to middle school, high school and adult audiences. Please schedule this presentation at least four weeks in advance.
Outside the Kansas City metro area:
Schools and groups outside of the metro area should complete the registration form
and will then be contacted about the availability of our speakers to travel to your location. Please schedule this presentation at least four weeks in advance to optimize MCHE's ability to locate a speaker available to travel to your location.
PLEASE NOTE: Our speakers are not historians. They provide a personal perspective on the history of the Holocaust. MCHE asks that teachers utilize this program as a supplement to their Holocaust unit and that it be scheduled late enough in the unit that the students are already well acquainted with the history. While there is no charge for these presentations, donations to MCHE in honor of our speakers are appreciated.
