The name "Massuah", meaning "beacon" was chosen to emphasize the purpose of the Institute as a guide to the past, a warning for the future, and a light to dispel the darkness and ambivalence associated with the Holocaust, particularly among young people today. Through in-depth seminars, audio-visual materials, literature, and personal survivor testimonies, Massuah offers a wide range of innovative educational activities and resources for students and teachers, and has provided instructional programming for over 200,000 students. Massuah is widely acknowledged as an outstanding educational facility for conferences, residential seminars and teacher training courses, and houses an extensive library of films and documents on the Holocaust that are used by educators and researchers.
