Happy birthday, Tess!

On June 6, Tess Wise, founder of the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center, celebrated her 99th birthday.

Tess always challenged everyone to examine the past in order to learn from it; to build a more just society free of all forms of prejudice. 

The Center encourages everyone to help celebrate her legacy with a donation in Tess's honor.

Thanks to a special anonymous donor, all gifts honoring Tess's birthday will be matched 100 percent up to $10,000. Please help the Center to continue building on what she so passionately began. Donations will help the Center continue educating people of all ages about the important history and lessons of the Holocaust.

Donations can be made at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/t9b.
