Speakers Bureau

The Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center is honored to have a group of dedicated Holocaust survivors who, as volunteers, make up the Speakers Bureau.  Throughout the year these individuals travel around Wisconsin visiting schools, churches, synagogues, and other community groups telling their story of survival during the Holocaust.  All Speakers Bureau visits are entirely free of charge.  Scroll down to see the members of our Speakers Bureau and to learn more about their stories. For more information contact HERC@MilwaukeeJewish.org.
