There are many ways you can help us make a difference through the power of witness testimony. Here are a few ways.
Andres Ruiz, a high school sophomore from Lynwood, Calif., is a member of the Institute’s William P. Lauder Junior Intern Program for middle and high school students. “Testimony has changed the way I look at people,” he said. “Now I look at people with many stories, not just one.”
In response to the Institute's 100 Days to Inspire Respect initiative, “it makes my students look at things from a different perspective, not just the ‘me’ perspective,” she said. “That’s the biggest thing I think they’re going to get out of it, learning to be more empathetic to others.”
“There has to be a human connection, so young people can listen, learn and talk through their feelings. Programs like the Master Teacher Program are more important than ever, and Institute's work is just beginning.”
“To be at the Center for Advanced Genocide Research here at USC Shoah Foundation – it’s amazing, the resources I have and the connections I can make. It’s really a fantastic place for me as a young historian to be.”
