Dear Prospective Member,
Thank you for your interest in the Holocaust Education Resource Council (HERC). The lessons learned from the Holocaust – tolerance, courage, and understanding – are invaluable in today’s society.
Established by children of Holocaust survivors, HERC in Tallahassee creates learning opportunities in the Big Bend area to help fulfill the state mandate for Holocaust education. Even though the Holocaust occurred over seventy years ago, the lessons of the Holocaust endure, and continue to be relevant in our community.
HERC is a member of the Florida Department of Education Commissioner’s Task Force on the Holocaust. Throughout the school year, HERC provides Professional Learning Opportunities about the Holocaust with materials and teaching methods. Furthermore, HERC sponsors a Holocaust book club and film series.
The Holocaust Education Resource Council (HERC) recognizes you as an important partner in our mission. As we continue to expand our community outreach, our services have never been in greater demand. Teachers, principals, and community organizations request our assistance and advice as they respond to the difficult times in which we find ourselves. Schools are experiencing an increase in bullying and bias. Your membership directly supports HERC and its educational activities. Your gifts and contributions enable the Holocaust Education Resource Council to sustain its many outreach programs. Members receive special invitations to film screenings, lectures, and special programs.
