Racism and injustice are on the rise and schoolchildren aren't sure what to believe or who to trust. generatione is assembling tools from leading international Holocaust education organizations, to prepare today's generation of schoolchildren to call out rising hatred and discrimination, to inspire them to be upstanders, and to reject intolerance wherever it arises.
In 2018, students from two schools in countries that were once enemies resurrected memories of hundreds of Jewish children whose lives were all but forgotten in the devastation of the Holocaust. Connecting across thousands of miles and by the thread of the Schindler family, whose son Max, exiled from Cottbus, Germany and near death after surviving six concentration camps settled to raise his family in San Diego, California.
There are millions of Holocaust victims, like Max's family, whose memories and voices have all but been forgotten. For those of us connected to the past by family or faith or those inspired by the universality of our human experience, we have a responsibility to activate today's student generation to reject hate, anti-Semitism, white supremacy and racist propaganda. generatione provides the tools to inspire students to repair our world – Tikkun Olam.
