Foundation fights hatred and prejudice
Contributed by Selden K. Smith Foundation for Holocaust Education
The Selden K. Smith Foundation for Holocaust Education was formed to further the programs of the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust. The foundation functions as a private source of funding for support of Holocaust educational activities and community awareness events in South Carolina and has a 501 (c) (3) status.

The South Carolina Council on the Holocaust was established in 1989 by the General Assembly of our state to honor the Holocaust survivors who moved to South Carolina and the South Carolina soldiers who liberated the concentration camps in 1945.

The council was given a mandate to create and encourage educational programs on the Holocaust. Current economic conditions and cutbacks in state appropriations have resulted in the need for private funding to ensure the future of various educational projects in our state.

The purpose of the foundation in South Carolina is to strengthen the council’s activities in memory, history and education. The foundation will also address related issues of international conflict, genocide, prejudice, and intolerance. Funding is provided to schools, colleges, churches, synagogues, civic groups, and individuals.

Hao Yu Li's curator insight, July 1, 2013 8:30 AM

Conflict and prejudice are the tragedy in our society and the world. Conflit between people do harm to the fragile relationship between peopleand they will stand off from each other. The conflt between countries may cause war, which will lead to a lot of loss of properties and even lives. Prejudice can hurt people's heart and attack them spiritually. Both conflict and prejudice can influence the harmony in our society and country, which are not supposed to appear due to people's selfishness.

prejudice and conflict are the tragedies in our society. Conflict between religions and races are harmful to the relationship between people. The Growing levels of violence and conflict in homes, schools and communities require government and people to alleviate together. Conflict is indeed harmful, maybe the war could be happened based on the conflict, which will lead to loss of lives and economy downfall. As a result, the country will be plunged into the abyss of calamity. Prejudice is even worse. "Prejudice, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow there, firm as weeds among stones." said by Charlotte Bronte. It is really true, prejudice can hurt people's heart and attack them psychologically. Prejudice makes people against each other and the country will no longer be grown positively and economically. Therefore, we should say no to conflict and prejudice. Instead of violence, we should unite together to create a peace--loving country.

Hao Yu Li's insight:

I can know from this article that conflict brings us tragedy. Because of the national interest in a multi-ethnic society, fights and riots are very common to see. Many people get injured and some are even killed during the riots. Conflits bring us loss of property and even lives, which can influence people's living condition and safety. However, this conflict is still not solved between the two countries. I think both of the countries should come to terms so that this problem can be well solved and bring happy life fo the citizens.

In this article, I can see the disastrous outcomes of not being a multi racial country like singapore. If the sri lankan government had not favoured one race over anothe, none of this would have happened. Young teenager would not have to join dangerous groups to fight for their freedom and everything would have been fine. This article has taught me the importance of being a fair and just country where everyone is given an equal opportunities, this article has also taught me the importance of peace and harmony as an internal conflict can cause the whole nation to be affected in a negative way.

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. From this article, I can see that the conflict between the Sinhalese and the Tamils in Sri Lanka has not been resolved even after 100 years which is suprising. Over this long period, many innocent lives have been lost, which is heartbreaking. I think that this conflict between the two races can be resolved as long as they are willing to understand each other more and accept one another. I wonder what was the start of all these arguements and why it cannot be solved even after so many years, and how serious is the problem that is worth the sacrifice of so many innocent people.

Darren Cheng's curator insight, July 10, 10:28 AM

After reading this article, I had learnt that the ethnic conflict between the Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka dates back to over 100 years ago. Because of this rivalry, many innocent lives were killed. It all started of because of unfair treatment to the Tamils. This conflict had caused the economy in Sri Lanka to slow down and affect the lives of the people, hence they have to go through all those difficult situations. I strongly believe that people should have the mindset of equality and fairness. There should be no discrimination or prejudice to towards one another. This to ensure the sustainability of peace and harmony and people will learn to accept one another differences and learn from them. This could also help by understanding and accepting more rather than hating as life is too short to hate. At times, i wonder who started all these hating, discrimination and prejudice.
