Bill Zimmerman completed the Safekeeping Stories of the Holocaust Workshop in early 2019, and is a member of the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center’s GenerationsForward Holocaust Speakers Community.
Both of Bill’s parents are Holocaust survivors from Poland, and he wrote their story in the workshop. Bill took a multi-generational pilgrimage to Poland with his parents, wife, and children in 2005.
Bill is an educator. He spent 36 years of his career in the K-12 domain, and over a decade at Iona College in New Rochelle, New York working with Education majors, teaching math courses, and co-teaching a Holocaust studies course which includes a study abroad component at Auschwitz.
“I derive great personal satisfaction from teaching. I enjoy not only teaching students and teachers about the subject matter, but fostering their social and emotional learning as well.”
