Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education

It was becoming evident in March, to those in the know, that funding for CHHRE was threatened by cutbacks occuring in all Florida public institutions. The threat became news on May 7 with a story in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Within days an outpouring of support for the Center gave hope that alternative funding would be found. On May 22 it was reported that sufficient private donations were committed to assure that the Center would not be closed in July as had been feared. Now it is hoped that an endowment can be established to assure that the Center will not be subjected to the uncertainties of public budgets. Your support is needed to give momentum to the effort to establish an endowment and to assure the Center will have adequate facilities, location and institutional support to carry on with its critical work.

  1. The dark side of human beings is continuing to show up and never lurks too far from the surface. The Holocaust is very recent history and genocide continues today.
  2. Our best chance of creating a better future lies with our children.
  3. Children learn from committed, loving, passionate teachers; they do not learn from memorials or archives or history books alone.
