The Foundation encourages the transmission of the history of the Shoah to schoolchildren. It supports educational initiatives and the organization of training sessions for professors. The Foundation finances, directly or via the Shoah Memorial, many school trips to memory sites in France and throughout Europe. Special attention is paid to the preparation of these trips and to the reports and work done afterward.
The Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne and the "Classe d’O" project proposed using music to address the Holocaust in primary schools. Pupils in Pleudihen-sur-Rance (Brittany) participated in the production of Le Cabaret Interdit, a show that paid homage to composers who fell victim to Nazism.
