Connect to resources for educational and awareness programs.

S.C.-specific resources 

  • Visit the Charleston Holocaust Memorial: the memorial in Marion Square, downtown Charleston was constructed in 1999. Its mission is one of remembrance and it stands as a permanent monumenta reminder of the Holocaust for future generations, long after the few remaining survivors in our community are gone.
  • Eastern Europe: the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust sponsors a biennial travel/study tour to Poland. The historical drama of the Holocaust is of special interest to students, teachers, religious leaders, and many people whose families may have originated in Poland. The tour is open to the general public. 

Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Resources

The Anti-Defamation League’s Braun Holocaust Institute, Glick Center for Holocaust Studies, provides education and resources that help educators and students study the history of the Holocaust and apply its lessons to contemporary issues of responsible citizenship, moral decision making, prejudice, hate, and genocide.

ADL has various resources for schools to respond to incidents, as well as to incorporate pro-active programs to help create a culture of respect among students and peers. For more information about ADL resources visit www.adl.org/holocaust-education or read more here

The Daffodil Project

The Daffodil Project is a worldwide initiative to plant 1.5 million daffdodils in memory of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust. Our goal is to create a living Holocaust memorial around Charleston in remembrance of the 1.5 million children who fell victim during the Holocaust.

 

The specific breed of daffodil that we plant have 6 petals to symbolize the six-pointed Star of David and the 6 million Jews that were killed in the Holocaust. Daffodils represent new beginnings and rebirth and that there is life after death. We remember the children even after so many years.

Daffodils Planted in Greater Charleston

With the help of schools and synagogues such as College of Charleston, Addlestone Hebrew Academy, Porter Gaud, Buist Academy, KKBE, Montessori Community School, and Northwood Academy, we have planted over 15,000 daffodils.
