This year, “HAMEC” will be honoring Deanne S. Comer for her lifelong commitment to the creation and implementation of quality Holocaust education, incorporating accurate history, and appropriate classroom strategies and as always, celebrating the legacy of the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center.

All are welcome.  Tickets are $95 individual / $175 per couple.  

RSVP required by Oct. 27 to info@hamec.org or 215-464-4701.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum, located at 10100 Jamison Ave., Suite 210, Philadelphia, PA, is the premier provider of Holocaust education programs in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond, thanks to their Skype in the classroom programs.  In the last school year alone, “HAMEC” completed nearly 500 programs and reached over 43,000 students. Newly created laws in various states mandating Holocaust education are likely to increase those numbers this year exponentially. The museum is dedicated to educating students about the consequences of intolerance and hate as most recently demonstrated in Charlottesville, VA.  Each year, museum programs reach thousands of students through Holocaust survivor presentations; in-person school visits or via Skype, videos, and plays from the Anne Frank Theater Project.

The Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center is a non-profit organization supported by grants from the Conference on Material Claims Against Germany, government and foundation grants, and also private donations.
