Understanding Diversity

The Wellington Holocaust Research and Education Centre has won a national award from the Human Rights Commission. The Centre, founded in 26, received one of 12 New Zealand Diversity Awards, which recognize projects that have made a difference in understanding diversity. “It is a great honor for the center to receive this national award after only five years of our existence,” founding director Inge Woolf said. “Our basic aim has been to tell of humanity lost, of resilience and survival, and to teach tolerance, courage and racial harmony.” The Centre teaches the history of the Holocaust through the lives of the survivors and refugees who came to Wellington.
