Terezin Institute

In response to a project undertaken by Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat and his wife Fran, a former Commission Member, the Commission donated funds to the Defiant Requiem Foundation for the establishment of the Rafael Schächter Institute of Arts and Humanities at the Terezín Memorial near Prague. The Institute promotes artistic expression related to Holocaust education and remembrance. Former Commission Members Amy S. Epstein and Laura Raybin Miller were responsible for the funding.
