“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

International Shared Reading Project

ISRP is a program originally created by The Ghetto Fighters’ Museum in northern Israel. After acquiring the program in 2014, CHHE successfully matched 12 American and Israeli middle and high school classrooms for the 2014-2015 school year also in partnership with the Youngstown Jewish Federation and the Canton Jewish Federation. This program allows students to share in the reading of Holocaust literature and memoirs based on the teaching philosophy of educator, author and victim of the Holocaust, Janusz Korczak. It invites students to not only discuss literature, but culture, conflict, religion and interests only teenagers would want to share.
