Holocaust Education Alive and Well in South Florida

Craig Weiner recently gave a tour to students of the Holocaust Reflection and Resource Center, which he and his wife Barbara founded at Nova Southeastern University.

For the Weiner’s, Holocaust education is a mission – and a necessity.  An April study conducted by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany found 22 percent of millennials hadn’t heard of the Holocaust.  41 percent were unaware that 6-million Jews were murdered.  Two thirds were not aware that Auschwitz was a Nazi death camp in Poland.
