Jordana Lebowitz

Jordana was inspired by participating in the March of the Living when she was 16, to become an advocate for Holocaust remembrance and human rights. She attended the trial of convicted former Nazi officer Oskar Groening in 2015 and co-authored a novel about her experiences there with established Holocaust author Kathy Kacer. She completed placements at the Museum of Tolerance in California, the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Australia and the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights in Montreal. For Holocaust Education Week in 2015 she brought a replica of a Holocaust cattle car to her alma mater, the University of Guelph, and set up an interactive exhibit inside. It was visited by more than 2000 people. She has turned this idea into a non-profit organization focused on bringing engaging Holocaust and social justice education to school campuses throughout North America. She creates interactive programming on the topic of the Holocaust and social justice and conducts book tours worldwide. She recently presented as a speaker and Master of Ceremonies at the 2018 United Nations International Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony. She is a recent graduate of Psychology and is pursuing her Masters of Education at the University of Southern California. Most recently, she completed an internship in the Holocaust Outreach Programme at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. She takes time to pursue her passions including speaking about her experiences.
