What We Do
To fulfill our mission, we sponsor middle/high school field trips to Holocaust and other learning centers dedicated to teaching mankind about the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity.
We also sponsor remote visits, if an interested school cannot travel to a learning center. Additionally, we facilitate, design, partner with or sponsor educational projects with students, communities or government agencies that are aligned with our mission.
To Request a Field Trip or Remote Visit, Please Contact Us.
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.
