There is nothing like the feeling of making a diﬀerence. I am proud of the work we do for educators and the community. I am motivated by what we have accomplished. From organizing school trips for high school students to the Florida Holocaust Museum, training teachers in districts from Leon to Escambia counties, and providing over 10,000 books to every school in Leon county, the impact is thanks to your support. Together we will continue our important work. We are committed to being part of education to teach required instruction.
I encourage you to give a donation that will help continue vital programs such as ﬁeld trips, books, and exhibits. Recently, a new display was launched at the HERC oﬃce that reﬂects stories that make us human. The partnership with SIE Co-Lab, features many lessons to be learned that will move us to act to make a diﬀerence. This exhibit presents three stories from survivors of the Holocaust. Each story reveals one of three thought processes that were common towards Jews during the Holocaust: hate, isolation, and humanity. By participating in this exhibit, you will understand how the thought processes of hate and isolation, among others, led to the systematic, state- sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regimes as well as the humanity that saved the lives of many others.
Don’t forget to attend the Remembrance Dinner on October 24th that will honor Ken Boutwell. If you have not made your reservation, do it now to secure your seats and recognize the Humanitarian Award.
