With most of the country confined to their homes, three organizations – The Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation (‘the PHRF’), the Boise, Idaho-based Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, and the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (‘HERC’) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin – have joined forces to create our Holocaust Education Week programming series. Launched in April and continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the alliance will offer an experience filled with a variety of pre-planned digital events and educational resources that are specifically designed to engage users from the comfort of their own homes.
During the month of October, our Holocaust Education Week programming will be focused around the theme of How did we get to Kristallnacht?. In addition to live virtual events, individuals and families will be able to access videos, online tours, articles, and more, designed to bolster our communities’ hope in these challenging times.
You can learn more about October Holocaust Education Week events on our comprehensive calendar: The Spiral of Injustice – Kristallnacht, “The Night of Broken Glass”.
