The Holocaust Education Resource Council has been established as a Non-Profit Organization to sponsor the Annual Student Holocaust Essay/Art Contest, Teacher Training Workshops, and community outreach.

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.
