"I would like to thank you for coming to our school to tell our class your family's experience in the war... I learned a great lesson about how you should never be afraid to do what is right." -Dustin, Auburn

The Holocaust Center Speakers Bureau consists of almost 30 active speakers who share their stories throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our Speakers Bureau includes Holocaust survivors and Legacy Speakers. Legacy Speakers are children and grandchildren of survivors, children of liberators, and children of rescuers (Righteous Among the Nations).

The mission of the Speakers Bureau is to provide a personal connection to the Holocaust for students of all ages, and show them a human face and story that listeners can reflect upon to confront bigotry and intolerance today. Hearing speakers give testimony helps students find their own voice, and helps teach them to be responsible citizens in our community, our nation, and our world.

The development of Legacy Speakers is made possible with the generous support of Debbie Killinger; the Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation, Inc; and the Norcliffe Foundation. Funding for Women's' Voices in History was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
