WHITE PLAINS — Audrey Unger Reich and Kathy Grosz-Zaltas were elected to the Advisory Board of Directors this past January due to their great commitment to Holocaust remembrance.
Audrey and Kathy are both active members of the Holocaust & Human Rights Education
Center’s (HHREC) Generations Forward Speakers Bureau. Aside from their work at the
HHREC, Audrey is an artist and educator who tells her father’s Holocaust story and has created artwork inspired by it, and Kathy is owner and president of Zaltas Gallery of Fine Jewelry located in Mamaroneck.
Audrey and Kathy are daughters of Holocaust survivors and share their families’ stories of
survival to spread awareness about bigotry and hatred. They share the Center’s mission to teach about Human Rights through the lens of the Holocaust.
The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center’s mission is
to enhance the teaching and
learning of lessons of the
Holocaust and the right of all people to be treated with dignity and respect. We encourage students to speak up and act against all forms of bigotry and prejudice. Some of our programs and initiatives include:
- A Speakers Bureau, comprised of Holocaust Survivors and Liberators, who through first-hand storytelling reach over 25,000 students per year.
- Provide curriculum with key lessons from the Holocaust for educators to use in fulfilling the NYS mandate, as well as professional development workshops. Free downloads of a Holocaust curriculum to teachers from across the country.
- Train thousands of Middle and High School students in our Human Rights Institutes.
- Robust programs of Events and Distinguished Lectures.
