Every year the Thaler Fund donates money for books about the Holocaust to the Kirkwood Community College Library.  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.
