Joe Diamond Speakers
Every other year, the HRC facilitates the Joe Diamond Speakers Training Program that allows 2nd and 3rd Generation Descendants to attend a formal training with the Director of Education at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, IL. The attendees are trained to learn how to tell their parent/grandparent’s story of survival from their perspective in a meaningful and relevant way, creating a specialized Power Point with the goal of joining the HRC’s Speakers Bureau to share their family legacy with students, teachers and community members.
