OUR MISSION ….IS TWO FOLD …..PROMOTING HOLOCAUST EDUCATION
Empowerment of education is one of the most effective tools to prevent future genocide. We have learned that SILENCE was not and will never be the answer. Our aim is to increase knowledge and understanding of the massive violation of human rights by promoting and instituting Holocaust curricula in our educational, digital and social media platforms. All of our programs have experienced amazing success and we hope to be the moral compass by which future generations are defined.
…..ENSURING THE WELL BEING FOR SURVIVORS IN NEED
The survivors of the Holocaust are the last living link to this tragic time in history, but many of these survivors are still suffering, living below the poverty level. The window of opportunity to help these survivors is closing. NEXT GENERATIONS established the Nancy Dershaw Grant in 2011 to raise funds to assist Holocaust survivors in need. Through our ongoing joint efforts with Jewish Social Service agencies in South Florida, we are improving the lives of many survivors who deserve to live the rest of their lives with comfort and dignity.
Our hope is that through knowledge, we will raise awareness of the realities of the Holocaust and its aftermath. We seek to inspire all children by shining a light on the courage of the survivors and the selfless acts of righteous people who put themselves in danger by helping the Jews. Through education, we hope that individuals reflect on the moral questions raised by the events of the Holocaust.
It is our vision to apply the lessons from the Holocaust and encourage all individuals to speak out against bullying, anti-Semitism and hatred so that history will not repeat itself. Our hope is the next generation will become stronger and more determined to free the world of bigotry and genocide.
What better way to honor all those that were scarred by the Holocaust than by transforming prejudice, creating a moral conscience, never forgetting and by never being silent again.
NEXT GENERATIONS is 501(c)(3) organization of children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and all those who are committed to educate future generations by preserving the memories of the past, carrying forward the message into the future, and keeping the voices alive.
