Who They Are:

The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center is a not-for-profit organization, serving Westchester, Fairfield and Putnam counties. Their mission is to enhance the teaching and learning of the lessons of the Holocaust and the right of all people to be treated with dignity and respect. They encourage students to speak up and act against all forms of bigotry and prejudice.

Their work with students and teachers helps schools fulfill the New York State mandate that the Holocaust and other human rights abuses be included in their curriculum.

Since 1994, they have brought the lessons of the Holocaust, genocide and human rights crimes to several thousand teachers, and through them, to thousands more middle and high school students. Their  programs are compelling and enlightening, making the past personally relevant to today’s children and tomorrow’s leaders while encouraging them to be rescuers and resisters in the face of prejudice and hate.

Through their volunteer Educators Program Committee, the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center gives teachers the unique opportunity to develop programs for themselves and others. These programs not only enrich teachers’ knowledge about the Holocaust and related issues, they provide the lens through which to view all other human rights violations.
