Testimonials from Survivors and our outstanding, supportive, award winning Holocaust instructors

 

Video produced by Fred Singer, inSIGHT’s Media Specialist

“As part of a grant program from inSIGHT Through Education in 2017, I attended a Centropa Seminar in Budapest, Hungary and Belgrade, Serbia. We researched 20th century history, Holocaust, civil society and the lives of European Jews. I formed partnerships with teachers from all over the world and acquired resources that enriched my curriculum because of this organization’s generosity. My 300 students created a movable museum based on the stories they used on the Centropa website. I am forever grateful to inSIGHT for their commitment and support”

I was fortunate to again be considered to accompany a group of teachers to the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Words cannot express the success of this trip. On a personal note as a Survivor, all this would have been impossible without your devotion, hard work, and financial help. You are contributors to history. You most certainly are investing in history. I believe that I as a survivor can speak for those whose voices have been silenced, but thanks to your untiring work, not forgotten, This is my short note of saying “Thank You” to all the members of the inSIGHT group. May the Hashem give you strength to continue with your monumental task so the memory of the Holocaust lives on.

– Norman Frajman, Holocaust survivor

As a teacher of Holocaust Studies at Palm Beach Central High School, I have had the opportunity to work with several organizations throughout the years. I can say without any hesitation that inSIGHT Through Education has been and continues to be the most supportive and generous of any other.

inSIGHT provided the funding for my students to spend time each year expanding their knowledge of the Holocaust by sending them to the Museum in Washington, D. C. I have a unique program for students who want to learn more about the Holocaust and the dangers of bullying as well as other genocides past and present. This class would not be possible
without the support and funding of inSIGHT.

– Maureen Holtzer, high school teacher

More than 20 years ago, I started an elective course on the Holocaust with
30 students.

Today, the program has grown to over 170 students in five classes. The
curriculum has expanded to include contemporary genocides and
encourages students to get involved by having them write to government
officials including the U. S. Ambassador of the United Nations.

This teacher education program has become a standard for teaching the
history of the Holocaust and educating teachers and students about the
significance of the Righteous as moral and ethical exemplars.

Without inSIGHT the teachers of Palm Beach County would not have the
materials we need to teach.

Excellence in Education Award from Anita Naftaly.

inSIGHT Through Education supports the K-12 Holocaust Studies
department of the school district. Due to the support the students of Palm
Beach County have seen inspirational programs such as The Children of
Willesden Lane and Living Voices. Teachers have been sent to Columbia
University to be trained as Lerner Fellows and then on to Europe with the
Lerner study program, March of the Living, and the Centropa programs.
Our elementary students have the opportunity to learn about the Holocaust
through classics such as The Ugly Duckling, The Sneetches, and Hana’s
Suitcase. Perhaps one of the most inspirational programs is our annual
trip with high school students to the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum. Thanks to inSIGHT Through Education, the lessons of the
Holocaust go on and are ever more important for our students.

– Maureen Hallacy Carter
K-12 Holocaust Education Program Planner, Palm Beach County

Thank you inSIGHT for doing what you do, to make it possible for me
to be a part, and a beneficiary to some degree, of your invaluable work.
Because of an interview that inSIGHT conducted and that was posted on
the internet with me, a man named Julius Maslovat spotted it. He had been
looking for me for years. We were both orphaned as very young children,
most of our immediate families murdered in the Nazi extermination camps
in Treblinka and other camps as well. He is in British Columbia, I in Boca
Raton, and we are to meet because of inSIGHT. We have so much to share
about our parallel lives and to come together to recount our years past.

Thank you for what you do, for making this special “encounter” possible.
Both Julius and I will be forever indebted to you.

– Frieda Jaffe, Holocaust Survivor
