"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

UPDATE February 27: We've done it. With your help and with the help of your friends, families, and colleagues, we have reached and exceeded our goal of $36,717 to fund this project! This is incredible support from old friends and new friends from around the world! Thank YOU. But it's not over yet. We still have several days until the project expires. Let's keep the momentum up! Please contribute if you can and urge your friends to contribute and share this with their friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, and emails.

Today, January 27th, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and we are honoring and remembering the victims, survivors, liberators, resistors and all of that were affected by the Holocaust. On this day we ask you to help carry on the testimonies and memories of our local Holocaust survivors, liberators and resistors by supporting our Kickstarter: "Creating Legacy Videos for Holocaust Survivors Now!"

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center has taken on the task of creating a series of professional documentaries being filmed of all the survivors, liberators and resistors in the Philadelphia area. With this project we hope to ensure that long after our heroes pass away, that their stories are never forgotten.

Want to Help Lobby for the Holocaust Education Mandate?

Click Here to find your local State Representative

Here is a script we suggest you use when you call them:
"Hi, I am calling because I know that the Mandate for Holocaust Education is up for vote in the State Legislature. I believe Holocaust Education must be mandated in the State of Pennsylvania to ensure the future of our children and future generations. We want our children to know that unchecked hatred can cause horrific consequences. We must all take a collective responsibility in making sure our world is civilized and that we learn from History what can occur. The best place for this education to occur is within our schools. Please vote for a mandatory State Mandate for Holocaust Education. Thank you for your consideration of this very important mandate."
