“We must teach the lessons of the Holocaust to our students, who will become our future leaders,” said educator Logan Greene.
Logan Greene, who teaches eighth-grade English in Hoover, Ala.—smack-dab in the center of the state (population 92,606, according to the 2020 U.S. Census)—has been honored for what the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous calls “his outstanding commitment to teaching the Holocaust in his school.”
Greene received the Robert I. Goldman Award for Excellence in Holocaust Education on Jan. 15.
“We are privileged to honor exceptional educators each year and especially proud to present this year’s award to Logan Greene for his outstanding work in teaching the Holocaust at Berry Middle School,” said Stanlee Stahl, JFR’s executive vice president.
“It is extremely humbling to have been chosen as 2023’s Goldman Award from among so many of my incredible fellow Holocaust educators who participate in the JFR’s national program,” said Greene. “At a time when antisemitism, misinformation and disinformation are on the rise globally, we must teach the lessons of the Holocaust to our students, who will become our future leaders.”
