Talli will share her grandmother’s story of resilience during the Holocaust, the importance of education in combating antisemitism, and honoring the legacy of Holocaust survivors to create a better future.
Why April: April 18, 2023 is Holocaust Remembrance Day also called Yom Hashoah. It marks the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, when Jewish resistance fighters defied the Nazis and fought for freedom and dignity. The Holocaust was the largest manifestation of antisemitism in recent history. Yom HaShoah reminds us of the horrors that Jews and other persecuted groups faced: forced labor, starvation, humiliation, and torture, which often resulted in death. It was a systematic effort to wipe out an entire population from the face of the earth.
Talli Dippold was the Stan Greenspon Director of Holocaust Education Fellowship Program and the Associate Director of the Stan Greenspon Holocaust and Social Justice Education Center. Previously, she was the Executive Director of the Levine-Sklut Judaic Library & Resource Center at Shalom Park.
Talli received a BS in Hospitality Management from the University of New Hampshire and her MS in Genocide and Holocaust Studies from Gratz College. After many years in the hospitality industry, she changed her focus and pursued her lifelong passion for Judaism and Holocaust studies. During the past decade, Talli traveled extensively throughout Eastern Europe and participated in numerous educational opportunities, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Belfer Conference, The Prestigious Holocaust, and Jewish Resistance Teachers Program, as well as the Hillel International Professionals’ Heritage Study Tour in Poland. She has been an active member of the North Carolina Council on the Holocaust since 2013, an Executive Board Member of the Association of Holocaust Organizations (AHO), and a new member of Jewish Heritage North Carolina board.
Talli is a 3G (third-generation Holocaust survivor), as all her grandparents are Holocaust survivors and a native of Jerusalem. Talli enjoys traveling with her husband and three grown children when she is not working.
