The challenges our young people face today, were unheard of a generation ago. With Holocaust denial and anti-semitism common on college campuses, the tools to deal with adversity are more important than ever.

Most teens today, have never met a Holocaust survivor, and certainly, very few have interacted with a survivor on a personal basis. The Sunshine Circle believes it is important to bring the teens and the survivors together, so that this part of our history becomes relevant to them in a personal way. By engendering rewarding relationships with the survivors, our teens will be bolstered as they move on to adulthood, by this meaningful connection to our shared history as a People.
