    From Generation to Generation …We Are Here! Honoring lives lost and stories of survival

By sharing stories of survival, and teaching their invaluable lessons learned, the Vermont Holocaust Memorial (a 501(c)(3) charitable organization) envisions a time when prejudice, bigotry and hate are replaced by respect for all. Additional information can be found on the organization’s website: holocaustmemorial-vt.org.
