Voices of Humanity, will pay tribute to the VOICES of local individuals and institutions who have impacted Holocaust education in Cincinnati. Holocaust survivor Werner Coppel and Summit Country Day School will be honored for their pioneering voices.
We will also celebrate the ten-year anniversary of our innovative, interactive, permanent exhibit Mapping Our Tears. The event will recognize the exhibit’s founding benefactors including Cinergy (now Duke Energy), Frisch’s, Kroger, Macy’s, Procter & Gamble, the State of Ohio, Time Warner Cable, United Way Mills Trust, and U.S. Bank.
Dr. Michael Berenbaum, will speak on the future of Holocaust education and museums. A writer, lecturer, and teacher consulting in the development of museums and historical films, Dr. Berenbaum served as Project Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, overseeing its creation.
This event will support CHHE’s efforts to teach Cincinnati youth about the dangers of prejudice and intolerance through the lessons of the Holocaust. For more information or to become a sponsor, please contact Sarah Weiss at 513-487-3091.
