The Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource Center was established in 1980 by an endowment from the Lloyd and Edythe Katz Family in memory of Edythe’s parents Gertrude and Hyman Sperling. Its purpose was to acquire books and materials relating to the Holocaust. The Center serves as a resource and lending library to the Las Vegas community.

Edythe Katz-Yarchever was appointed chairperson of both the Center and the Governor’s Advisory Council on Education Relating to the Holocaust. Since that time, the Center has evolved into not only a resource and lending facility, but also a hub for Holocaust Education activities and programs in Nevada. The Center is free and open to the public.

Because of generous on-going donations from Lillian and Henry Kronberg and Judy and Ron Mack, the Media Center was added to the collection a few years later.

The Center operates in conjunction with other entities such as¬† the Governor‚Äôs Advisory Council on Education Relating to the Holocaust (a State of Nevada Holocaust Education Agency under the auspices of the Governor’s Office), the Clark County School District, the Holocaust Survivors Group of Southern Nevada, the Northwest Reno Library (which houses our sister Holocaust Collection, established by a grant from the Ron and Judy Mack Education Foundation in memory of Judy‚Äôs father, Shia Szrut, a Holocaust victim), the Washoe County School District, Elko County Library Holocaust Resource Center Collection, the Nevada State Department of Education, ADL‚Äôs ‚ÄúNo Place for Hate‚ÄĚ and other local and national Holocaust Education organizations.
