Holocaust Education

Since 2009, David Rutiezer has been a docent, docent trainer and speaker at schools and at the Oregon Holocaust Memorial in Portland, Oregon, guiding many groups of middle school and high school students and adults. He uses the story of his mother’s family, some of whom are named on the memorial wall of those who perished, to help us never to forget the lessons of the Holocaust. For more information, contact David, or the Oregon Jewish Museum & Center for Holocaust Education.

Reading the Holocaust: A Presentation & Interactive Workshop

David has chosen a selection of excerpts from the memoirs of local Portland, Oregon-based Holocaust survivors who were his mentors in Holocaust education. What relevance do these memoirs have to our lives today? During this presentation, participants will read excerpts together, share their reactions, and discover resources for further study and exploration.
