Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education
Formed in 2000 by a group of Holocaust survivors and their families, the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education strives to ensure an enduring future for humanity by educating young and old people alike about the horrors of the past. Inspired by a quotation from the Jewish New American Society in 1965, the group hopes to maintain a memorial “that will make sure our dear ones have not died in vain.” To carry out that mission, the center hosts regular events and educational programs and opens the doors to its permanent exhibit “Mapping Our Tears”, a recreation of an attic in 1930s Europe set in a multimedia theater. Somber and educational, the exhibit conveys the history of the Holocaust through artifacts donated by local families and video of eyewitness testimonials about the tragedy itself.
