Gift from Craig & Barbara Weiner Creates Holocaust Reflection and Resource Room in NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library

A gift from Craig and Barbara Weiner to Nova Southeastern University will result in the installation of a new Holocaust Reflection and Resource Room in the Alvin Sherman Library. The gift was presented by Craig Weiner, President of the Holocaust Learning and Education Fund, Inc. and his wife Barbara to NSU at the Alvin Sherman Library Circle of Friends Annual Gala on May 14.

The gift will fund, furnish, equip and build the new room, on the Alvin Sherman Library’s second floor. In addition, an endowed fund will be established to provide resource materials and for maintenance of the room as well as to support related special events.

“Due to the generosity of Craig and Barbara Weiner, the Alvin Sherman Library will be able to provide unique information resources for the university community including the residents of Broward County,” said Lydia Acosta, M.A., NSU vice president of information services and university librarian. “ This room will serve as an educational place of serious study and reflection on this period in history. “

Set to open in the coming academic year, the room will offer NSU students and the general public a place to learn about, and to contemplate the horrendous acts that result from intolerance and hate.
