NYC Next Generation Board held on July 28th, 2010 at CitiField  on behalf of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Next Generation Board of New York City fundraiser, CitiField, July 2010, on behalf of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

MATTHEW ROZELL has been invited to address audiences from education professionals to VIP gatherings across the Northeast, Canada, and Israel on topics ranging from history and civic education, World War II, The Holocaust, Holocaust remembrance and commemoration, and ethic/moral responsibility in the age of genocide. His talks are tailored to his audience, but focus on motivating individuals by introducing his extraordinary experiences in teaching the lessons of the past. He writes on these matters at his blog, teachinghistorymatters.com.

If you would like to contact the author about speaking with your group, please contact us at matthew@teachinghistorymatters.com.  Indicate possible dates and times, the nature/context of the program/event/conference, approximate audience size. Due to increased demand, audiences under 50 people are difficult to schedule, and honorarium requirements vary according to audience size and distance traveled.

A sampling of written comments from a 2017 lecture on ‘A Train Near Magdeburg’:

  • “Fabulous presentation- thanks so much!!! What a tribute – thanks for sharing.”
  • “As a child of Germans who came to the US in 1930, this presentation was very emotional.  Enjoyed it very much.  Excellent presentation.”
  • “A very moving presentation.  Never to be forgotten – I will never forget.”
  • “Very informative lecture .  Well presented!  Tragic story that needs to be remembered.”
  • “This is an incredible story, very very moving!!! Thank you Matt Rozell for your obvious dedication to young students which is the true basis for this unfolding of history in the making reflecting on the past.  I appreciate your time today, it was an honor…mesmerizing.”
