Take the jouney to support Holocaust education.

Walk, run, ride at least 15 miles during the month of November and raise money and awareness for Holocaust education.

NOVEMBER 2023

Be a part of the Journey

Mark Schonwetter along with his mother and younger sister walked 15 miles to escape their hometown in Poland to go to a ghetto where they thought they would be safer.

 

We invite you to take the journey and walk (run or ride) in Mark’s footsteps.

 

Raise money for Holocaust education while bringing awareness to this important topic.

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
