BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A social studies teacher from Alabama is being honored for his commitment to lessons about the Holocaust.

Michael Gadilhe teaches at John Carroll Catholic High School in Birmingham. He is receiving the Robert I. Goldman Award for Excellence in Holocaust Education.

The award is being presented Monday by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous. A ceremony takes place at the New York Public Library in Manhattan.

His principal, Charles McGrath, says Gadilhe “has made it his life’s work to teach the human experience of the Holocaust.”

Gadilhe has taught for more than 25 years. He was introduced to The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous by the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center, which sponsored his participation in the foundation’s summer institute in 2015 and an advanced seminar earlier this year.
