Seton Hill’s Holocaust Center Receives Educational Trunks on Loan from the Pittsburgh Holocaust Center
"The first time I heard about the Holocaust trunks was at a conference in Houston," Wilda Kaylor, NCCHE coordinator, said. "The Holocaust Museum there assembled materials and put them in large trunks to ship out all over the country. Many other centers have followed their lead."
Underwriters for the two trunks at Seton Hill are the Grable Foundation, Francine Gelernter and the PNC Bank Foundation.
"We are grateful to have the trunks on loan from the Pittsburgh Holocaust Center," Kaylor said, noting it is very expensive to assemble one. "This gives us the opportunity to share educational materials with our local schools much sooner than we would have been financially able to do so otherwise."
