Social studies educator Mark Sack ’76 was deeply shaped by his experiences in Dr. Rabinsky’s class and returned to Heights High in 2012 to follow in her footsteps as class instructor. He established the Holocaust Education Fund to further augment and enrich student learning of Lessons of the Holocaust curricula.
The first use of this fund helped students attend the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust Conference held in Cleveland that year. Dr. Rabinsky, and her successors, Sol Factor and Adrienne Yelsky ’65, accompanied Mr. Sack and his students at this special gathering of more than 400 Holocaust survivors and their descendants from all over the world.
Since then, the fund has supported in-depth professional development, lesson planning with field experts, and student trips to: attend a lecture by the late Elie Wiesel at Kent State University, and visit the United States Holocaust Museum and Memorial, the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., Detroit’s Holocaust Museum, and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, and more.
