Each year, as preparations begin to celebrate Thanksgiving, I am reminded of all of you. Having a national holiday set aside that encourages us to stop what we are doing (even if for only a short while) and reflect on our many blessings is a great idea.
The Center for Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education of North Carolina (the Holocaust Speakers Bureau) is most grateful for your continued support: financially, volunteer-wise, and spiritually. It is heartwarming to be told repeatedly that our work matters and is appreciated. I guarantee you - our Board Members, speakers and volunteers get more than we give!
We continue to give presentations at schools, houses of worship and community organizations. We hosted a sold-out teacher workshop, are beta testing a mobile app and had a capacity crowd at our recent film screening and discussion of Denial. Our 5 documentaries are overwhelmingly successful, being used at schools throughout our state (you can view them by visiting our website, www.holocaustspeakersbureau.org). We're working on documentary #6, Before It’s Too Late: The Holocaust Through North Carolina Eyes - an ambitious endeavor to produce a film for PBS broadcast and schools.
Our programs are made possible because of your generous tax-deductible donations. Please consider an end of the year contribution by using the link below to help us continue our important work. Thank you to all who have contributed recently. May we go from strength to strength. Wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
The Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education of North Carolina (Holocaust Speakers Bureau) assists local educators and organizations with teaching the challenging topics of the Holocaust, genocide, tolerance, and human rights. We work with teachers, schools, and organizations to develop age-appropriate materials and presentations for all students.
