Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, Inc.

The Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation formed by Craig and Barbara Weiner in 2013 for the express purpose of broadening Holocaust education amongst America's students. It is the ultimate goal of the founders of this program to see this form of education expanded through many other states in order to teach America's students how intolerance of others can lead to the destruction of our social fabric, while patience and understanding of others will always result in a safer and better world for all to live in.
