Honoring 50 Years of Holocaust Curriculum at Heights High School
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In a time of escalating polarization and hate in this country, the Heights Schools Foundation and Heights High School are pausing to both honor 50 consecutive years of a Holocaust-themed curriculum at Heights AND to reaffirm the critical importance of continued teaching and learning the lessons of the Holocaust. Nurturing compassion, empathy and the wiloingness to speak out and take action against any form of hate and descrimination is our message.
