The JFCS Preisler Shorenstein Institute for Holocaust Education was established in memory of Simon Preisler, z”l, father of Lydia Shorenstein and Renee Barasch, who was born in Fancsicovo, Czechoslovakia in 1925. A survivor of Auschwitz, he settled in Germany, where he had a successful career in business after the Holocaust. Preisler’s courage and wisdom serve as a reminder of the strength of the human spirit in the face of hatred and indifference.
