What We Do

Holocaust Education & Remembrance

The goals of the JCRC’s Holocaust Education & Remembrance programs are to raise awareness of the dangers of prejudice, hatred, and violence, and provide relevant resources and opportunities to reinforce this knowledge and awareness. We also organize the Twin Cities Annual Yom HaShoah Commemoration.

Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War

The exhibition, Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War, illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the astonishing rescue effort that brought approximately 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi Germany to Great Britain and other countries, including Sweden between 1938 and 1940.
