Elizabeth Gelman, Executive Director of The Florida Holocaust Museum
The Florida Holocaust Museum has been proud to participate in Give Day Tampa Bay since its inception two years ago. We’ve had fun creating videos and email and social media campaigns. And this fun paid dividends – with many donations being made in our name at the Community Foundation Tampa Bay as well as directly on TheFHM.org.
This year, the timing of Give Day Tampa Bay falls during the Week of Remembrance which commemorates the nearly 12 million people, six million of them Jews, who suffered and died at the hands of Nazi perpetrators and their collaborators.
As you might expect, we don’t see this as a time for clever fundraising campaigns.
In observance of the Week of Remembrance, we are hosting a number of programs to commemorate the lives of Jews persecuted and murdered during the Holocaust. Please view our Holocaust Remembrance Week Schedule and consider attending our programs.
Thank you for helping us use the lessons of the past to create a better future for all. We hope you find the work we do educating the next generation on the dangers of hatred and prejudice important enough that you will remember us during Give Day Tampa Bay and beyond.
