History

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. Then, with the generous donations from Lillian and Henry Kronberg and Judy and Ron Mack, the Media Center was added to the collection a few years later. Over the last few years, the Center has evolved into a resource and lending facility for materials relating to the Holocaust, and is now considered a hub for Holocaust Education activities and programs in Nevada. The Center is located at Temple Beth Sholom and is free and open to the public.

The Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource 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 Washoe County School District, the Nevada State Department of Education, ADL‚Äôs ‚ÄúNo Place for Hate‚ÄĚ and other local and national Holocaust Education organizations. The Elko County Library also houses a Holocaust Resource Center Collection. Lastly, The Northwest Reno Library houses a 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.
