Every year the Thaler Fund donates money for books to the Kirkwood Community College Library about the Holocaust.  This is a local fund managed by the Temple Judah of Cedar Rapids. According to their website the Thaler fund was created and endowed by Dr. David and Joan Thaler: “to keep alive the memory of the six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust and to combat the propaganda of those who deny that the Holocaust ever happened by supporting a continuing course of study about the Holocaust at Coe College, Mount Mercy College and Kirkwood Community College. The fund also brings Yom Hashoah speakers to Cedar Rapids each year.” Here are this year’s selections:
