In Memoriam

Our community mourns the passing of Dr. Selden Smith

  It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of Dr. Selden K. Smith on February 12,  2018 at the age of 88.

  Dr. Smith devoted much of his life to justice, tolerance and combatting hatred. He was truly the "father" of Holocaust  Education in South Carolina. His tireless efforts to teach the lessons of the Holocaust have been an inspiration to many and  his mentorship and guidance has influenced others to follow in his footsteps.
