Hearts for Human Rights

Due to the weather on Feb. 9th, the event has been moved to Wednesday, March 8th. We anticipate that we will have a few tickets available to sell as some who were planning to attend on 2/9 cannot make the new date. If you would like to purchase tickets, call Jordan at (207) 621-3530 to see if any tickets are available. 

We’re still accepting donations to support out work.

At the Brunswick Hotel & Tavern, 4 Noble Street, Brunswick, Maine

All proceeds benefit the programs of the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine (HHRC). Located in the Michael Klahr Center on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta, the HHRC’s varied programming reflects the mission: “We use the lessons of the Nazi Holocaust and other genocides to combat prejudice and discrimination in Maine and beyond. We encourage individuals and communities to reflect and act upon their ethical and moral responsibilities in our modern world.”

In addition to an on-going program of exhibits, films, and special events, the HHRC provides free educational outreach to schools and community groups. Current outreach programs include: Decision Making in Times of Injustice, The Message Matters, Civil Rights in America, Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine; Kristallnacht,  and German P.O.W. Camps in Maine. HHRC programs are provided free of charge to school groups at the Klahr Center, and in schools throughout Maine. Support for bus costs is available to school groups wishing to attend programs at the Klahr Center in Augusta. For more information on programs, visit our Educational Outreach page.
