On October 26, 2014 Nate Leipciger was honoured by Facing History and Ourselves at an event in Toronto. Nate Leipciger is a Holocaust survivor and a committed leader in Holocaust education. For over 40 years, Nate has shared his testimony with people of all ages, inspiring thousands to become upstanders with firsthand accounts of courage and survival in the face of horrific adversity. His determination to provide young Canadians with meaningful learning experiences about the Holocaust led him to join forces with the Facing History and Ourselves Ontario Advisory Board at its inception.
