We are committed to HONORING our parents' legacy and those who were killed in the Holocaust. We will not allow the world to deny or forget the Holocaust. Our goal is to EDUCATE and raise awareness of what happened during the Holocaust and its aftermath. We seek to INSPIRE our children and other young people through the lessons of courage and survival that our parents directly experienced. Our programs enable us to serve as a RESOURCE for the community. They embody messages of compassion and understanding and encourage individuals to stand up against hatred, evil, and indifference. We pledge to keep the stories and memories alive from generation to generation.
