The Holocaust Center is doing an excellent job keeping the story of the Holocaust alive, teaching the lessons of tolerance and fighting to preserve the rights of others. The outreach that The Center does to area schools and educational institutions is invaluable, and the Testimony Project, which has recorded the stories of 18 of the local survivors, is a tremendous resource.

I teach about the Holocaust to high school students. The Holocaust Center has proven to be a much needed resource to add reality to our reading. My students are from a very non-Jewish part of Pennsylvania, so we've invited a survivor to speak, and attended last year's Writing Seminar. There was a survivor there as well, and the students participated in the writing and art response (2 of my students won!) I will continue to look to the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh as a resource.

The Holocaust Center is a vital part of the vibrant Jewish community in Squirrel Hill. It provides a plethora of diverse services and programs that are informative. If you have not attended an event I suggest that you do so.
