Opportunity to Hear This Remarkable Speaker!

October 23 | 5:30 PM
Dr. Bernd Wollschlaeger, the son of a decorated Nazi tank commander who became a Jewish Israeli citizen and author of A German Life: Against All Odds, Change is Possible. What does a decorated Nazi tell his son about the war? Nothing. Dr. Wollschlaeger was 14 when he discovered his father’s role as a Nazi in World War II. That moment began Dr. Wollschlaeger’s transformative life journey. With his message of “Don’t live in the shadow of history,” Dr. Wollschlaeger will explore how he changed shadows in to light.

Holocaust Survivor Interview

The cafeteria at Lawton Chiles High School was filled with students, yet…eerily silent. Except for the voice of a visitor who came to share her life story. Students listened closely and shared their reactions. At Chiles High School, Holocaust survivor Anne Allen spoke on March 23 for the Living Museum Week. So many students and teachers were impacted. Anne shared her experiences as a survivor of the Holocaust. Her visit to the school was part of a Living Museum program to raise student and community awareness of the Holocaust. Never Forget.

HERC – Mission Statement

Holocaust Education Resource Council (HERC) provides instructional guidance, support and resources for educators who teach the history of the Holocaust, and educational programs for the community at large.
Funded in part by Florida Department of Education Commissioner’s Task Force on Holocaust Education.
Designated Site of Florida Department of Education Commissioner’s Task Force on Holocaust Education.

Support HERC

The Holocaust Education Resource Council, is funded in part by grants through the State of Florida Department of Education, The Tallahassee Jewish Federation, Ruby Diamond Foundation and a member of the Association of Holocaust Organizations. Their support is greatly appreciated.

Less than $1.00 is allotted for each student annually in the State of Florida for education of the Holocaust. It is nearly impossible for students to grasp the material and understand its relevance with inadequate curriculum, training and supplies. It is imperative our future generations recognize the danger of prejudice and hate and instead approach others with respect and acceptance. Read More
