Distant Learning Classes


The Holocaust Resource Center's Distant Learning classes have returned from their spring trip to Washington DC where they toured and spent time at the United States Memorial Holocaust Museum (USHMM). The students attending the trip have taken a semester long Holocaust course elective that culminates with this optional day trip to DC. There were 36 high school students and chaperones along with course instructor Clayton Adams and HRC Executive Sandy Saada on the May 13th trip. Travelers were from the following high schools: Falconer, Maple Grove-Bemus Point, Westfield, Pioneer, Gowanda and Frewsburg.
A generous private grant from the family of Violet Fabian funded most of the student portion of the trip and will do so again next spring in Violet’s memory. Mrs. Fabian, a survivor of Aushwitz and Bergen Belsen passed away in November, 2012. She was devoted to the educational mission of the HRC of Buffalo and particularly valued the distance learning course.
A card with a photo of Violet Fabian, and a bit of her history was given to each participant on the trip
