In memory of Jeffrey Alan Schwartz, his brother Larry Schwartz and family have established the Jeffrey Alan Schwartz Holocaust Speakers Bureau. This newly developed program is now available to bring second and third generation descendants of Holocaust survivors into regional private, public, and independent schools, and community clubs and organizations to keep the history, messages, and lessons of the Holocaust alive.
If you are interested in booking a speaker, please fill out this form.
The most impactful experience relating to Holocaust education is hearing survivor testimonies. Sadly, as many of our Holocaust survivors are aging and we are losing their precious presence in this world, it is time for the next generation to lift and share their voices.
“The Talmud teaches that when we quote someone who has died, their lips whisper from the grave.” — Babylonian Talmud
The Greenspon Center has gotten a strong start over the past year by introducing the Heritage Testimonies® Program in partnership with the Museum of Jewish Heritage, A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. The course offered participants the opportunity to create an extensive, pedagogically appropriate presentation aimed at educating students of every age — from middle schoolers to adults.
“When you listen to a witness, you become a witness.” – Elie Wiesel
The Greenspon Center is honored to be part of keeping the message of our community’s survivors alive for future generations, through their descendants. For more information, or to bring a speaker to your school or community, please contact Talli Dippold, (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like to make a gift in support of this program, please contact Talia Goldman, (email@example.com).
