Review quote

The nine international educators who both tell their personal stories and detail their educational and pedagogical work remind us not only how much is presently being done and how well, but how much more needs to be done to translate the tragic events of the Holocaust into contemporary lessons. One can only hope that their stories and their work will inspire a new group of educators to continue their activities and teach future generations that the past need not be repeated. -- Steven Leonard Jacobs, Aaron Aronov Chair of Judaic Studies, University of Alabamashow more
