Who Will Write Our History
Are the phrases "Never Forget" and "Never Again" empty promises? We hope not. In light of the tragic expressions of hate that continue to plague our country and the world, this is an important time for us in the Greater Harrisburg community to breathe life into those phrases.

The film shows how a determined group of people chose to preserve the real story of enduring life in the Warsaw Ghetto. It is a story of how to combat hate, as these individuals risked so much to record their experiences, providing the truth that would be omitted from history by their oppressors. These compelling first hand accounts are a powerful aid in understanding the Holocaust, and also the raw hope of humanity. This event is important for everyone in the community, whether Jewish or not.
Sharing this film goes beyond the November 10th presentation. The impact continues through funding an educational outreach program to local middle schools, high schools and colleges, enabling us to provide viewing licenses and DVD's of the film, with an aim to raise awareness of the Holocaust and combat hate.
