The Holocaust Center was a very valuable resource for me during the years that I was a high school history teacher. My students were able to benefit from the Center's Survivor Speakers Program, their middle and high school annual seminars, the Arts and Writing Competition, their library and archive resources and a variety of lectures, programs, exhibits, etc. The staff of the Holocaust Center has changed over the years, but every staff member has been knowledgeable, professional, welcoming and helpful to the many students and adults that I have sent to them for advice and assistance.

I have used the Holocaust Center in a variety of ways. I have taken my students there to tour the facility and to hear survivors and others speak. I have had survivors speak at my school when we were unable to visit the Holocaust Center. I have attended workshops at the Center about teaching the Holocaust. The Holocaust offers a wealth of materials available to educators. In my opinion teaching our youth about the Holocaust is vital. The Holocaust Center has greatly helped me achieve that goal.
