Generation After is an organization of individuals whose parent or parents survived the Holocaust, as well as other individuals devoted to the mission of Holocaust remembrance and education. Instrumental in gathering video testimonies of area survivors and in founding the Holocaust Resource Center, Generation After continues to be involved in Holocaust-related activities. Remembrance and community education is facilitated by involvement in the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center and an ongoing commitment to the annual community Yom HaShoah Commemoration.

The Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) is dedicated to the building of a society resting on the values of tolerance and diversity, dignity and respect toward all human beings. Programs and seminars for educators and the general community, an active Speakers Bureau, school outreach programs, educational consultation and an annual educational series not only preserve the history and memory of the Holocaust but guide future generations to consider ethical behavior in order to fight racism and bigotry. The Remember Us Project provides a vehicle for students becoming a bar/bat mitzvah to link the knowledge of their Jewish past to committed action today. The Center also has an extensive collection of Holocaust books and curriculum materials.
The Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center is a program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
