Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource Center

Interior view of the Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource Center, 2016
The Sperling Kronberg Mack Holocaust Resource Center of Las Vegas welcomes all to its library and collections. Allocations from the Governor’s Advisory Council on Education Relating to the Holocaust by the Nevada State Legislature and private donations make the center’s continued work possible.
The center was established in 1980 by an endowment from the Lloyd and Edythe Katz family to honor the memory of Edythe’s parents Gertrude and Hyman Sperling and enlarged due to generous contributions from Lillian and Henry Kronberg and Judy and Ron Mack. 
An impressive lending library of books and artifacts related to the Holocaust are housed at the center. Education so that no one ever forgets the devastation of the Holocaust is the center’s singular mission. To accomplish this objective, the staff and volunteers organize and host educational activities, outreach programs, and teacher training workshops about the Holocaust for the Clark County School District.
In March 2017, the Holocaust Resource Center, formerly located at Eastern and Tropicana, moved to a new home at Midbar Kodesh Temple. A permanent photo collection of survivors living in Las Vegas is displayed there. Admission is free and all are invited.
