International Shared Reading Project The Shared Reading Project connects 24 schools in America and Israel. Students in classrooms throughout Ohio and Israel are paired together to read a piece of Holocaust literature and then engage in dialogue with peers in a specially designed online discussion forum. This project aims to help American and Israeli students comprehend the complexity of the Holocaust while encouraging discussion and reflection with a person of their own age, but from a different culture. This program was originally created by The Ghetto Fighters’ Museum in northern Israel and acquired by HHC in 2014.
Support Hope After Hate Hope After Hate seeks to fight acts of prejudice and hatred today by learning from modern history’s greatest such act, the Holocaust. This immersive educational tool uses virtual reality and multimedia to bring the audience inside the story of a Holocaust survivor, while relating his journey to current events. The project serves as a resource for teachers who want to incorporate lessons of humanity and social justice into their classrooms, empowering students to speak up and challenge discriminatory acts and language. It also creates a platform for civil discussion among community groups to encourage our collective personal responsibility to create a more just society. To donate to the project, click the link above and make sure to type “For Hope After Hate” under “Submit message to Holocaust & Humanity” or funds will divert to other programs.
