"Hearing one person tell their story gave a completely different perspective to what happened, as it wasn't about statistics or about a nation as a whole, but one person who lost his family and home." ~O. Avery (student)

Jeff Kornblau

We, at the Holocaust Awareness Museum, mourn the passing of long time member supporter and former Board Member, Jeff Kornblau. Jeff and Lynn's early financial, emotional and physical help were instrumental in getting our Museum to where we are today. We offer condolences to Lynn, Adam and Jon, who serves on our Board of Directors. They are amazingly strong people and we are proud to be a small part of their network of friends.

Our Museum to the Rescue

Our Museum came to the rescue yesterday, Wednesday October 16th. 130 students from Lancaster Catholic High School were supposed to go to the Holocaust museum in Washington DC but because of the government being shutdown, were not able to go. We stepped in. Thanks to Ruth Hartz and Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel, Ernie Gross and Don Greenbaum spoke to them. The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote a fantastic article about the program. Pictures to come soon!

Also, a big thank you to Randi Boyette and the Anti-Defamation League for putting the school in touch with us. Without her these students would not have been able to see the speakers.
