As a result of our program, there is now a cadre of over 500 master teachers from across the U.S. and Eastern Europe who have a firm grounding in the history of the Holocaust and the subject of rescue.

With the generous support of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference), the JFR has had a widespread impact on Holocaust education throughout the United States.
