Established in 2002, the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) is one of four regional divisions of the Alabama Holocaust Commission (AHC)* dedicated to Holocaust remembrance and education.

Inspired by Alabama Holocaust survivors whose presence in our community makes us mindful of the injustices in their past, the BHEC is committed to preserving their memories and continuing their legacies.

The lessons of the Holocaust are profound and relevant, providing a platform to explore important ethical and moral issues.  Our goal is to keep the history of the Holocaust alive by providing engaging resources, programs, and initiatives to the students, teachers, and communities of Alabama.  Through Holocaust education, we hope to ensure that new generations will apply the lessons of the Holocaust to the construction of a more just, humane, and tolerant future.
