#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving, powered by social media.

This year for #GivingTuesday, you can help CANDLES continue to educate students about the Holocaust. Donate to our #GivingTuesday funds to:

- Help students visit CANDLES to learn about stories and lessons from the Holocaust:

The Walter Sommers Education Fund provides much-needed support to offset costs of school field trips to CANDLES. Funds are applied toward transportation fees, substitute teacher stipends, and admission.

- Provide students with a life-changing opportunity to tour Auschwitz with Eva Kor:

The CANDLES Student Scholarship Program enables young people to participate in CANDLES’ annual summer tour of Auschwitz with survivor Eva Kor. There is no more effective way to teach about the consequences of hatred – and compassion – than to visit this site with a survivor and hear her story firsthand. It’s an unforgettable experience for a student.

- Send a classroom set of Surviving the Angel of Death to a middle school or high school:

Eva Kor’s beautifully told memoir is written for student and adult audiences alike. Her life lessons of perseverance, compassion, and healing resonate with people of all ages. A classroom set of Eva’s books will personalize the Holocaust and allow students to read her story of tragedy, survival, overcoming hatred, and self-empowerment.
