Join the KHC for our annual Rabbi Isidoro Aizenberg Memorial Lecture to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year’s event features Tomasz Kuncewicz, Director, and Maciek Zabierowski, Head of Learning & Special Projects, from the Auschwitz Jewish Center in Oswiecim, Poland who will discuss the complexities of educating people about the Holocaust in a town that is synonymous with the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination and concentration camp in what was formerly Nazi-occupied Poland during WWII.

 

The Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation was established in 1995 in order to rebuild a Jewish cultural, spiritual, and educational center in Oswiecim. In September 2000, the Auschwitz Jewish Center opened its doors to visitors from all over the world. It is a non-governmental organization which exists to serve as a guardian of Jewish memory, as well as to educate the public about the Holocaust. Since August, 2006, the Center has been affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York, USA.
