    Doing the Right Thing ~ Making a Difference

    Each school year in the City of Naples, students are recognized when they Do the Right Thing. The program is designed to recognize school aged children within our community who are doing good things. The Do the Right Thing program is a community based initiative which brings the Naples Police Department together with our community, local businesses, local schools, community organizations, city recreational centers, and most importantly, our youth. The goal of this program is to reinforce exemplary behavior while helping to build self esteem. It is also our intent to build bridges of trust throughout our community and to publicly thank our youth for their positive deeds and contributions to this community.

    This year, the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida has joined in this partnership to increase the recognition of young people in our community who exemplify the characteristics of responsibility, respect, service, compassion and courage. Seven of these young people have been selected to receive addition recognition for their deeds that most closely connect with the Museum’s mission.

    Doing the Right Thing ~ Making a Difference is made possible by the following people and organizations:

    faktorinvestigationThe Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida
    is pleased to present its first interactive exhibit,
    The Faktor Investigation: Finding the Story in the Details, this
    June thru October 2015. This exhibit gives you the unique opportunity
    to learn how individual men and women were personally affected by
    the Holocaust. We invite you to examine the life of Stanislaus and
    Sala Faktor by using their personal letters and documents.
    Previously untold, their story gives insight into the plight of many forced to leave Europe in the face of Nazi oppression.  This special exhibit focuses on the Faktors’ early lives and careers in Nazi Germany, their immigration to the United States and their communication with family members across the world.
