Five Program Areas in 2021-2025

During the next few years, East Bay Holocaust Education Center (EBHEC) will focus on five program areas


  • Host Holocaust Survivor Talks
  • Sponsor showings of Holocaust Films
  • Produce performances of Holocaust-related plays & concerts




  • Create a lending Library of Holocaust-related books
  • Create a Resource and Training Center with online capabilities
  • Train area high school teachers on using “iWitness,” a web-based educational program developed by the University of Southern California’s Shoah Foundation Institute (SFI) that provides access to more than 1,500 full life histories, testimonies of survivors and witnesses to the Holocaust and other genocides for guided exploration.


  • Resume and Expand our Touring Exhibit to include religious organizations, corporate businesses, and community facilities
  • Sponsor Holocaust-inspired High School Art, Writing, & Video Contests
  • Provide Holocaust and tolerance-based training programs to community and religious leaders and corporate and public sector employees

Inclusive Leadership

EBHEC Leadership and Advisory Board will include prominent representatives of Jewish and non-Jewish spiritual groups, the corporate sector, and community members. Our leadership group will set priorities and help keep EBHEC connected to the greater East Bay community.
Permanent Facility

Building a Permanent Facility

By 2025, we plan to solicit funding to build a permanent EBHEC facility to open in 2030. The facility will feature a library, resource center, classrooms, exhibits, and a lecture hall for talks and film screenings.
