“I am truly honored to accept the responsibility of carrying out the mission of the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center. The environment we find ourselves in today makes it vitally important to combat prejudice, intolerance and bigotry. We must teach our children to stand up for themselves as well as others, and to be upstanders who defend the right of everyone to live in peace and with dignity,” said Kaidanow.
