Through the study of the Holocaust, people of all ages can learn about ethical decision making, moral courage and the individual and collective responsibility necessary to maintain our human rights. The BHEC believes that by learning from the past, we can fortify our knowledge and be leaders in preventing such evil from recurring.

    The Children of the Holocaust

    The Children of the Holocaust

    Nine Birmingham, Alabama Holocaust survivors share their stories of despair, endurance, and ultimate survival in Nazi Germany and then their arrival in the United States. The stories themselves are powerful and compelling, but the fact that these are narrated by the survivors themselves makes them an undeniable truth and a testament to the events of the time. This documentary makes use of original photographs and footage taken during the years of the Holocaust, creating a powerful historical record. It is our hope that through this work, these Holocaust survivors will not be forgotten and their experiences will remain a truth that we can all learn from.
