“If we do not talk about it, if we do not remember, then the world will never know. And that has made me speak about it.”
—Henry Meyer, Holocaust Survivor

RESCUE IN THE PHILIPPINES: REFUGE FROM THE HOLOCAUST recounts a fascinating, yet seldom-told, chapter in World War II history. The documentary chronicles a real-life Casablanca, in which a high-profile group of poker buddies — including Colonel Dwight Eisenhower — devised an intricate international plan of rescue and re-settlement, saving 1,300 Jews from Nazi concentration camps. RESCUE IN THE PHILIPPINES tells this story through interviews with historians, relatives of key participants, and first-person accounts from refugees who detail their harrowing escape from Europe and immigration to the Philippines. The RESCUE IN THE PHILIPPINES DVD can be purchased for $20 including tax, plus an additional shipping fee. (*DVDs are shipped out in bulk on Fridays)
Discounts available for purchases greater than 5. Contact us at 513-487-3055 for more information.

Finding Family is an Emmy nominated one hour-long documentary produced by Channel 12 WKRC-TV in conjunction with The Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education.
Finding Family follows Henry (Henzi) Blumenstein, a social worker and grandfather in America, on a journey back to Europe to meet the descendents of the family who saved him 60 years ago. It is an uplifting story of courage and hope and a moving testament to love and kindness. As we journey with Henry to reconnect with his foster family, we learn the true meaning of belonging in the human family.

“In our minds we always resisted.”
Dare to Speak: Voices of Resistance explores the variety of ways Jews resisted during the Holocaust—not only by taking up arms but also spiritually, artistically, and intellectually, as well as the very will to survive against their oppressors as an act of resistance. Dare to Speak won a Silver Addy Award in February 2010.
The documentary is available for purchase through CHHE for $10, and includes a companion guide to assist educators.
Learn & Remember: Cincinnati Reflections on the Holocaust - Published in 2008 by the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in partnership with Cincinnati Community Kollel, this book contains testimonies and recollections of 22 Cincinnati based Holocaust survivors, as well as essays and reflections on the Holocaust written by community members, religious leaders, and scholars.
