The sheer number of people affected during the Holocaust is almost incomprehensible. The ability to bring speakers to audiences in Georgia is an important aspect of the Commission’s support of Holocaust education. By replacing the statistics with personal stories, the survivors and victims are given a voice and it also ensures that the Holocaust is never forgotten.
A minimum audience size of 75 attendees is required for any speaker program.
Members of the audience should be grade 5 and above.
