The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) is a Jewish, pro-Israel, human rights organization established in 1977 by Rabbi Marvin Hier. The Center is known for Holocaust research and remembrance, hunting Nazi war criminals, combating anti-Semitism, tolerance education, defending Israel, and its Museum of Tolerance.Make Simon Wiesenthal Center a part of your Los Angeles vacation plans using our Los Angeles day trip planning website.
The Center has close ties to public and private agencies, and regularly meets with elected officials of the United States and foreign governments and with diplomats and heads of state. It is accredited as a non-governmental organization (NGO) at the United Nations, UNESCO, and the Council of Europe.
The Center publishes a seasonal magazine, In Motion.
The Center is named in honor of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal. Wiesenthal had nothing to do with its operation or activities other than giving its name, but he remained supportive of it. "I have received many honors in my lifetime," Wiesenthal once said, "when I die, these honors will die with me. But the Simon Wiesenthal Center will live on as my legacy."
Simon Wiesenthal Center reviews
After getting lost in the worst page of human history: THE HOLOCAUST TIMELINE and you breath and touch the subhumane degree men and women have turned to... then when you're sure everything is lost..... more »
What is gratifying when you visit the Museum of Tolerance is the varied ethnic background of the visitors and how moved everybody seemed to be watching the terrible story of the Holocaust unfold... more »
This is an amazing organization. I'm not sure what the many BTS postings are about, but they are not related to SWC's core work. As one can see from some of the other reviews, there is significant antisemitism in the US, and a major need to remind people of the crimes against humanity which some blindly deny or try to whitewash.
Thank you for acknowledging the issue and avoid the unwanted harm spreading further. Although some may not agree the best approach was made due to lacking of understanding in complexity in political environment. I appreciate the work you had attempt to made to correct the situation.
