PRESERVING THE LESSONS OF THE PAST TO BUILD A FUTURE OF TOLERANCE

People forget how bad hatred is. It can become a habit. I was imprisoned in Auschwitz. For a long time I didn’t want to talk about my experiences, but now I understand that I must. We need to fight hate. This is what I would leave as my legacy: to remember that hate is a terrible thing.

REMEMBERING THE HOLOCAUST

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN GOAL

$7 million

With the support of our generous donors, funders and a RACP grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we have already raised $4,000,000 for the capital expansion of the Holocaust Memorial Plaza. Make this transformative, educational new public space a reality by making a gift today.
