The course is named in honor of Roma and Sam Kaltman, Holocaust survivors who relocated and lived in Cincinnati. The Kaltman’s were committed to education and telling their stories, so that future generations would “not forget.” In its 22 year, the Kaltman’s daughter Sandy, and her husband John Isidor continue their commitment to Holocaust remembrance and education in presenting this course.  Additional funding is provided by the Claims Conference.
