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.”

Happy 90th Birthday to Joe Engel!

The SC Council on the Holocaust wishes a very happy 90th birthday to Joe Engel – a real HERO. We say “thank you, Joe” for more than 70 years of educating others about the Holocaust. Because of you, hundreds of thousands of individuals – students, teachers, civic clubs, and the general public – have been exposed to the lessons of the Holocaust. Because of you, the experiences and memories will be shared with hundreds of thousands more for generations to come, and your legacy and the legacy of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust will live forever.
