We were pleased to host the Azrieli Foundation at our Rotary Club of Toronto Forest Hill - Yorkville.

Our speaker, Elin Beaumont has been with the Azrieli Foundation for seven years as their Educational Outreach and Events Coordinator. Elin has planned and organized numerous educational events across the country and has created programs to enlighten governments, schools and the general public about the importance of Holocaust remembrance.

We listened and watched video about the powerful stories of Holocaust survivors. This not only serves as a reminder of the atrocities of the Holocaust, but also raises awareness about important values and the continued importance of protecting human rights. 

The Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program collects and publishes stories written by Holocaust survivors who came to Canada after the war. Each story is a personal account of survivor's experience before, during and after the war, providing readers with a deeper understanding of the Holocaust.

All Rotarians and guests have received a free copy of one of the memoirs published by the Azrieli Foundation.


Please let this be a reminder to BE A GIFT TO THE WORLD – like Elin Beaumont and the Azrieli Foundation!
