"If we have learned one thing from our past, it is that to live through dramatic events is not enough; one has to share them and transform them into acts of conscience."

- Elie Wiesel

 

The Righteous Conversations Project brings together Holocaust survivors and teens to speak up about injustice in today’s world through new media workshops and community engagements. Launched at Harvard-Westlake School in February of 2011, the Project works in partnership with schools and local non-profits to empower teens in collaboration with Holocaust survivors to imagine and shape a better world.
