In response to a project undertaken by Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat and his wide Fran, a former Commission Member, the Commission donated $10,000 to the Defiant Requiem Foundation for the establishment of the Rafael Schächter Institute of Arts and Humanities at the Terezín Memorial near Prague. The Institute will promote artistic expression related to Holocaust education and remembrance. Former Commission Members Amy S. Epstein and Laura Raybin Miller contributed the funds. The dedication of the Institute is planned for the fall of 2011.
