|The principal organisation in Asia devoted to Holocaust education.
Since its inception, HKHTC representatives have visited more than 50 Local and International schools in Hong Kong. This includes screenings of Holocaust related films and visits with Holocaust survivors who have shared their experiences with pupils. In addition, our Board members have been guest speakers at special assemblies and we have assisted teachers with curriculum-related enquiries.
The HKHTC has also held two outstanding public exhibitions, organised lectures and hosted visiting academics who have run Holocaust themed seminars. Other activities to date include running annual commemorative events for the United Nations Holocaust Memorial Day and Yom HaShoah. We are full members of The Association Of Holocaust Organisations which links us with major Holocaust education and survivor organisations globally.
In August 2016, the HKHTC appointed Simon K. Li to be Director of Education. Simon came to the Centre from a Hong Kong-based higher education institute, where he was a Senior Lecturer and served as Head of General Education. He researched at the University of Leicester and has been a commissioned guest editor of the UK-based academic journal Asian Education and Development Studies. A graduate of Yad Vashem's International School for Holocaust Studies, Simon conducts research on Holocaust and tolerance education in Asia and has been giving different lectures on the difficult and complex topic of the Holocaust and genocide. Simon has degrees in history from Queen's University, Canada.
