South Carolina Council on the Holocaust

“The work that the SC Council on the Holocaust does is so important for our students in South Carolina. Having a chance to discuss and reflect on the past gives students the tools to be better citizens for our future.”

- Molly Spearman, State Superintendent of Education

Summer 2018
The South Carolina Council on the Holocaust provides educational programs about the systematic genocide of six million Jews and others in the Holocaust to help prevent such atrocities from happening again. Our work seeks to honor the survivors of the Holocaust and the camp liberators who call South Carolina home.
