We Need Your Help!

Whether in the physical bricks and mortar of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial or the education programming of the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, fostering value and respect for human dignity and diversity through education and community outreach is what we do. The mark that the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights is making throughout the state is motivated by the conviction that every member of the human family is worthy of fundamental human rights. “Respect for human dignity and diversity” is more than a value proposition. It is the mark we make that presents our community and state as a welcoming place to live; it is the mark of how and where to conduct business; it is the mark we secure for the next generation.

    We teach to “never forget” so that we can commit to “never again.” Combining scholarly discourse and presentation with application discussion and practice, the Summer Institute draws upon the lessons of the Holocaust to shape the integration and examination of contemporary human rights issues in the classroom.  REGISTER
