Nevada Humanities

“In 2009, Nevada Humanities brought Holocaust survivor Eva Kor to Reno. Ms. Kor spoke to 600 students at a Reno high school about her experiences in Auschwitz and the importance of social justice. Her talk was also broadcast to over 4,000 students statewide – this was an incredible learning experience for our students. I have never seen students so moved, interested, and engaged.”
