About inSight Through Education
What We Do
The goal of inSIGHT is to create awareness in our community of the enactment in 1994 of Florida Statute 1003-42 and the need to help fund the activities, tools, programs and teacher training that is necessary to achieve the goal of this Statute to teach the lessons learned from the Holocaust and Genocides.
How We Do It
Palm Beach County and area schools are invited to apply for educational Grants from inSIGHT to enable teachers to enhance student education. A Grants committee reviews each Grant Application to determine its merit for funding inSIGHT offers informational programming to the Community and sponsors fundraising events to provide Grant Funding.
1. To use the experiences of the Holocaust and Genocides worldwide to recognize and oppose hatred, bigotry, bullying and prejudice and to encourage acceptance and respect for all.
2. To promote educational awareness that makes a positive difference for our students and encourages them to be “upstanders”.

What People Say
inSIGHT is essential for enhancing my lessons and enriching the students learning through various mediumsLauren Gardener
I have just returned from what I would consider a historical journey. I was fortunate to again be considered to accompany a group of teachers to the US Holocaust Memorial in Washington, D.C. Words cannot express the success of this trip. Unless you a participant you cannot experience the historical value of this trip. It is blessing to be affiliated with the INSIGHT organization. From the outset there was an aura of history of the Holocaust like trying to come out and be shared. We certainly had an opportunity to prove it by being at the Museum. Right after arrival we settled in into a hotel and went directly to the Holocaust Memorial. I was with a devoted group of educators who under the capable leadership of Maureen Carter started our unforgettable visit. I must mention that this was not my first trip but somehow this one was more outstanding and meaningful. We all had an opportunity to meet literarily hundreds of young people as well as their parents, representing every state. We told them where we are from and how extensive our Holocaust educational programs are. On a personal note as a Survivor, all this would have been impossible without your devotion hard work and financial help. You are contributors to history. I must admit that I frankly was getting exhausted but by the same token happy for the opportunity to share some of the true facts of the tragedy of the Holocaust. We made tremendous inroads with connections. Many of the visitors that approached our group were from Europe, South America and the Far East. In no words can your efforts be expressed. You most certainly are investing into history. I believe that I as a survivor can speak for those whose voices have been silenced, but thanks to your untiring work not forgotten. This is my short note of saying “Thank You “to all of the members of the INSIGHT group. May the Hashem give you strength to continue with your monumental task so the memory of the Holocaust lives on.Norman Frajman
I cannot begin to tell you, to describe to you an event (in my life) which recently occurred – and it took a program, by inSIGHT to enable it to happen. Wow…is all I can say…other than “thank you, inSIGHT” for doing what you do, and on a personal note, to make it possible for me to be a part, and a beneficiary to some degree, of your invaluable work. So, what am I talking about? A few weeks ago I was forwarded a email from Professor Emmanuel Alvarado, Palm Beach State College, who had interviewed me on behalf of inSIGHT and the interview was posted on the Internet. A man by the name of Julius Maslovat spotted the inSIGHT interview, and it jolted him for a number of reasons….most especially because he had been looking for me for many years, and hope against no-hope, wanted to get in touch with me…..to verify, and hopefully find that indeed I was the “Frieda Jaffe” he was looking for. Then on the same day…..I received a direct email from Julius Maslovat, he just KNEW that I had to be the Frieda he was looking for. Too long to detail in this note….but Julius and I are now in full contact, hope to meet in person, and I will do my utmost to hopefully fill in some of the details in his childhood life that he has yet to discover. Briefly, we are both born in Piotrkow, Poland….he a number of years younger than I…both of us orphaned as very young children, most of our immediate families murdered in the Nazi extermination camp of Treblinka and other slave labor camps, and both of us, at various stages and times, were imprisoned in the Nazi camps of Ravensbruck and Bergen-Belsen. No, we did not know each other…..but our circumstances are incredibly parallel. So much to recount, and so much more to describe, and so much more to thank the inSIGHT organization for creating this unbelievable and emotion-filled (yet to take place in person) meeting between 2 children of the Shoah – Julius is in British Columbia, and I am in Boca Raton….but we are still alive and still able to share our indescribably impossible/but true events leading up to an eventual meeting in person. Come to think of it….when our person-to-person meeting does take place …wouldn’t it be wonderful for inSIGHT to be present with us, and give us the opportunity to thank your organization in person??? Yes!!! Again, thank you for what you do, for making this special “encounter” possible. Both Julius and I will be forever indebted to you.Frieda Jaffe
