Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education (CHHRE)

Speakers’ Bureau

Holocaust Survivors Speakers' Bureau: The Center schedules Holocaust survivors to speak to school classes throughout the year. To schedule a speaker, please use the link to download the Speaker’s Request Form  and email to A request does not guarantee that we will be able to provide a speaker.  

Dear Teachers:
Due to the age and health circumstances of many of our Holocaust Survivor speakers, as well as the inability to drive to speaking engagements, we have been forced to change the way requests are handled. Our pool of survivors is greatly reduced and therefore, we are only able to provide middle and high schools with Survivor speakers. Also, we can only schedule one survivor per school per year. Please coordinate with other teachers/classes in your school and plan to hold the event in the auditorium, cafeteria or media center. You may also wish to broadcast the Speaker in house through your TV production department.

We understand that this differs from past years but we are dealing with circumstances that we cannot control. Please address any questions to the Linda Medvin, Director, CHHRE at

Thank you for teaching your students about the Holocaust and human rights. You are doing important work!
