Located at the Asper Jewish Community Campus, visitors enter the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre by walking through a replica of the boxcar doors which sealed the fate of so many of those transported to the death camps during the Holocaust.

An Evening with Dr. Max Eisen, Survivor and Author: By Chance Alone
Save the Date for our 2019 Holocaust and Human Rights Symposium
Our 2019 Symposium will feature Shoah survivor Max Eisen and Roma Educator, Amy Komus. As a first-hand witness and a survivor, Mr. Eisen has been long devoted to educating others about the Holocaust, encouraging understanding, and teaching about the dangers of hatred and discrimination in society. A survivor of a forced death march during the Holocaust, Mr. Eisen participates annually in the International March of the Living between the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps held on Holocaust Remembrance Day. Mr. Eisen has received many acknowledgments and awards for his tireless efforts including most recently, an Honorary Doctorate from Trenton University. His autobiography, By Chance Alone: A Remarkable True Story of Courage and Survival at Auschwitz, was published in 2016.
