Workum Internship – Summer 2020


Description of Organization:

The Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center (HHC) exists to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. HHC educates about the Holocaust, remembers its victims and acts on its lessons. Through innovative programs and partnerships, HHC challenges injustice, inhumanity and prejudice, and fosters understanding, inclusion and engaged citizenship. Established in 2000, HHC was originally formed by Holocaust survivors who made Cincinnati their home after the war. Moved by their shared experiences of loss and survival, they built an organization that would inform the community about the Holocaust and its lessons.

Located at the historic Union Terminal, HHC is a museum and an education and resource center that offers students, educators and community members in the tristate region exhibits, school materials, outreach programs, workshops and professional development for educators.

HHC has an annual budget of around $1 million, eight staff members with advanced education and history degrees and ten part time floor staff. HHC impacts over 100,000 individuals each year.
