A treasure lost
With the passing of Anita Loeb we have lost a true treasure. Anita helped countless numbers of people in all the endeavors with which she was involved.
In particular, her helping people discover more about their own personal family histories was an achievement in itself. We in Kansas City were so fortunate to have had such a giant of good deeds in our midst.

The board of directors of the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education strongly condemns recent statements by Kansas Sen. Steve Fitzgeraldwho alleges that Planned Parenthood is “more insidious than [the Nazis]” and that “the Nazis ought to be incensed by the comparison.” Having been notified of a donation made in his honor to Great Plains Planned Parenthood, Fitzgerald, a strong opponent of abortion rights, wrote that being associated with Planned Parenthood “is as bad, or worse, as having one’s name associated with Dachau.”
The mission of the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education is to teach the history of the Holocaust applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide. For more information, visit mchekc.org.
