Florida Bill Mandating Holocaust Education
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived,
but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
“LEGACY OF REMEMBRANCE”
for all our children and grandchildren so they will know and understand the meaning of NEVER AGAIN
The Holocaust Documentation & Education Center (HDEC) has been devoted to documenting the memory of the Holocaust and educating today’s generation about the dangers of bigotry, hatred, and intolerance for the past 39 years.
The museum has been central in collecting over 2,500 oral histories of Survivors, Liberators, and Rescuers as well as artifacts, photographs, and documents that provide invaluable eyewitness accounts to the story of the Holocaust. The museum also features a unique combination of two iconic artifacts – a Railcar and an American Sherman Tank – of the type that liberated Dachau – that provide impactful moments of reflection for visitors.
As a leader of Florida’s Holocaust education statute, the HDEC hosts Student Awareness Days and programs that educate younger generations about the continued issues of hatred, bigotry and bullying. Students participate in writing contests as well as interact with the Survivor community in South Florida.
