Edwin & Alma N. '51 Lakin Holocaust Library & Resource Center: Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of the Lakin Holocaust Resource Center is to provide community awareness, information, audio-visual support and education about the Nazi Holocaust to prevent this tragic event and other genocides from happening again. We carry out this mission by providing the educational community of Berks County with assistance and the resources necessary to teach the Holocaust and other genocides to their students. In addition, we provide speakers to the schools and community groups in Berks County. The Resource Center works cooperatively with Berks County Intermediate Unit by sponsoring workshops and seminars for teachers. It works closely with local religious institutions and community groups in their presentation of Holocaust and genocide-related programs.
