Foundation / Corporation
Jewish Federation of Delaware - Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Center - Arnold D. Kerr Holocaust Education Endowment Fund
Grants of up to $2,500 to Delaware teachers and organizations for one-time educational opportunities related to the Holocaust. Teacher applicants may work in any discipline; however, please note that preference may be given to teachers in Language Arts/English and Social Studies/History.
Awards are meant to support and inspire educational opportunities for Delawareans that will raise awareness about the dangers of discrimination, indifference and the consequences of hatred - to hearten diversity and enhance understanding about the Holocaust so that future generations will be spared the horrors of genocide.
Please note that the lessons learned from the Holocaust must be taught with historical background and documented facts:
-Hitler and the Nazi regime’s goal was the complete destruction of the world’s Jews and separation of non-Aryan from Aryan populations.
-Many economic and social factors made the Holocaust possible, along with collusion of governments, collaborators, and bystanders.
-There is no justification for perpetrating atrocities against persecuted groups. Heroism and courage by victims and witnesses of every faith, age and background was widespread.
While there is no reasonable answer for why the Holocaust was allowed to happen, projects should promote the following lessons learned from the Holocaust:
-Individuals, institutions, religious groups, and governments each play a vital role in protecting civil rights for everyone.
-Those who resisted serve as role models of the strength, valor, guardians of human spirit, personal character, and ethical beliefs, and give us hope for the future.
-Study of the Holocaust provides opportunities for significant reflection and personal growth.
