Sharing our Stories, a Kol Israel Holocaust Education Program

A mobile Holocaust education program through video presentations, this program provides the opportunity to learn about the Holocaust and apply its lessons to combat bullying, bigotry, hatred and Anti-Semitism to create a better tomorrow in a shorter format that comes to the classroom, church or a venue of your choice. A child of a Survivor provides the video presentation and discussion sharing their families’ personal testimony.

Our program:

  • Include an hour-long video presentation that brings a personalized, distinctive and intimate perspective of events through a Survivor’s testimony enhanced with historic and personal photographs. A Survivor’s child will lead a discussion following the video

  • Explores the consequences of prejudice, hate, and apathy to teach tolerance and encourage moral development to foster a personal sense of responsibility

  • Supplements History, English, Art, and Religion classes which integrates into the Ohio Department of Education standards

Our Impact: Over 400 presentations to area schools

Fees : no charge

Our Stories

“Our Stories” provides compelling, eye-witness testimony from local Holocaust Survivors that can help people understand the personal impact. These Holocaust Survivor videos are edited and enhanced with historic and personal photos.  It is ideal for the classroom or organizational meeting and, is generally, presented by Survivors’ family members. 

“All survivor organizations across the world grapple with saving individual testimony for posterity. These video presentations pair the history with family for a moving and memorable presentation. We are proud to develop and share this critical program.”
— Anne Lukas, Chairman of the Board, Kol Israel Foundation
