The Holocaust Speakers Bureau (a component of the Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education of NC, Inc.) seeks children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and concentration camp liberators (known as 2Gs and 3Gs). The Holocaust Speakers Bureau visits schools, houses of worship and organizations throughout the year to share the experiences of the Holocaust through eyewitness testimony. Since it is becoming increasingly more difficult for survivors and liberators to participate, we are seeking to expand our speaking network to include 2Gs and 3Gs.
Please contact Sharon Halperin at 919-933-9089 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or would like more information.
The Holocaust Speakers Bureau is a 501c(3) organization. We have been visiting schools since 2010 and have spoken to thousands of students in the Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Cary, Pittsboro and Hillsborough communities. Generally, we do not travel more than 1 hour away from these cities.
The Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education for 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. We also offer an extensive resource library. Wherever possible, we arrange for survivors (and, in some cases, their liberators or children of survivors) to address classes and other groups.
