Why your support is so important in making a difference...
“Thanks to the Mark Schonwetter Holocaust Education Foundation…books were sent to Yancey County North Carolina. Yancey County, NC, is quite poor and rural. The 88 Club, a notorious Nazi Youth group, actively recruits members from Yancey County. Two classes in the middle school can simultaneously read the book! Your foundation is pushing back against pro-Nazi youth groups and is reaching into Yancey County, NC!!!!”
- Michael Abramson, North Carolina Council on the Holocaust
