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
International Holocaust Remembrance Day was designated by The United Nations General Assembly to commemorate the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945. On this day, we honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and recommit ourselves to developing educational programs that help prevent future genocides.More Info
