Hope After Hate

What's next: Hagit Limor traveled to Poland and Germany to scout locations for an immersive/virtual reality project her University of Cincinnati students will be helping to shoot this October. (WCPO-TV plans to cover the students’ journey.) Moniek’s Legacy uses her father’s story to fight hatred and bigotry today. The ultimate goal is an educational product available to schools and community groups that want to discuss any form of bigotry today. Click here to donate tax-free to the project.
