“Teaching About Genocide”

The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous (JFR) was one of the co-sponsors of a major teacher seminar held at POLIN, the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, October 8 and 9, 2017, in Warsaw, Poland. The program, organized by the education department of POLIN, attracted some 300 teachers from across Poland. The focus of the seminar was teaching the Holocaust.

The JFR brought Professor Emeritus Peter Hayes, from Northwestern University, to give the keynote lecture on Monday, October 9, 2017. Professor Hayes presented on “New Answers to Old Questions about the Holocaust”.

Giving Tuesday

As we give thanks this year, let us remember to thank and take care of the men and women who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust – non-Jews who refused to be passive in the face of the evil they witnessed. Now elderly and in financial need, help us to make their Christmas holiday a little brighter. Each December the JFR raises funds to send a special award to our rescuers for the purchase of food at Christmas. Our goal this year is $25,000 – help us reach this goal. Please consider making a gift. Click here to donate now.
