What We Do
To fulfill our mission, we facilitate educational programs that share the stories of ours and others families' along with events and subjects that surrounded the Holocaust. We believe learning these human stories enables communities to bond together and strengthen their commitment to preventing future genocides. Our Past programs include in person events at schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as virtual webinars. We share other educational information through our periodic newsletter, blogs, and social media.
In addition to the programs we create and schedule, we are happy to partner with schools or groups to create a specific program of interest. You can send us a request by using the form below.

Through Holocaust education, students deepen their historical knowledge and learn what caused the Holocaust, where racism can lead, and how to prevent something similar happening again.
Students carry with them a respect for the memory of the victims.
As students gain insight into the many historical, social, religious, political, and economic factors that cumulatively resulted in the Holocaust, they gain awareness of the complexity of the subject and a perspective on how a convergence of factors can contribute to the disintegration of democratic values. Students come to understand that it is the responsibility of citizens in any society to learn to identify danger signals and to know when to react.
