The Helen and Joe Farkas Center for the Study of the Holocaust is now an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization! Mercy High School San Francisco, our home base for the last 10 years, will sadly cease operation as of July 2020. Amidst all the changes going on in our world today, the Farkas Center stands ready to serve you by teaching about the Holocaust and other human rights atrocities so that “Never Again” becomes a reality for all peoples.
May the courage and spirit of our community give us strength during these tumultuous times.
March of the Women is a tribute and a memorial for the women lost at Auschwitz. It shows how the present overlaps with the remains of the past. Courtesy Carrie Zeidman (carriezeidman.com)
