Purple Heart Reunited

This November, the United States Army reunited the Purple Heart medal and certificate with the family of Tech. 5th Grade Robert Mathis at the Holocaust Memorial Center. Lt. Col. Matthew Yandura was stationed at the Jerusalem Consulate and discovered Robert Mathis’ Purple Heart certificate in a consignment shop. After months of research, Cadet Jay Choi, a senior in the Loyola Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program, located Mathis’ family. Watch this moving video of the ceremony, which includes a Color Guard conducted by the Jewish War Veterans.


Thank you for supporting our 32nd Anniversary Dinner!

In the below video, created for the Holocaust Memorial Center’s 32nd Anniversary Dinner, Lori Talsky Zekelman discusses the passage of the Michigan law mandating Holocaust and genocide education that she spearheaded, and Michigan teachers explain why it is so important to students. The video also is a touching memorial to Elie Wiesel, who passed away earlier this year.
