Phoenix Holocaust Association

Phoenix Holocaust Association is a partnership of Holocaust survivors, their descendants and the larger community. We honor the memory and legacy of the survivors and victims, promote awareness of the Holocaust, provide education of this and other genocides, and contribute to tikkun olam, repair of the world.

Phoenix Holocaust Association’s (PHA) board of directors mourns the death of George Floyd and extend sympathy to his family and community. We implore everyone to pay attention to the lessons of the Holocaust about the dangers of hate and intolerance. We urge constructive actions by our government and law enforcement agencies to ensure everyone’s safety and civil rights.

A key part of the mission of Phoenix Holocaust Association is education.  We have been working with state legislators on a bill that would mandate teaching of the Holocaust and other genocides in every Arizona middle and high school.  Although the pandemic impacted passage of the bill this year, we will continue our efforts when legislative sessions resume.

May our nation rise to the anguished calls for positive change, justice and healing.
