: We all approach the events of the Holocaust from unique perspectives. It is through these perspectives that we try to make sense of this world that we live in.

History: A chronological record of significant events.

Narrative: Is personal. It makes us cry because it shows that everything that happens in this world happens to someone just like us, a person.

Art: Is evocative. It allows us to wipe away the tears and cope with the struggle of reality, while feeling closer to those who lived through the struggles.

This and all Holocaust Center programs are funded through the generosity of our donors, either through direct annual giving or gifts to our Endowment Funds.
