A gift to the Harris Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will aid in the study of methods for teaching about the Holocaust and intolerance.

Nebraska alumni and siblings Peter Sommerhauser, of Milwaukee, and Eileen Sommerhauser Putter, of Seattle, donated $100,000 to the University of Nebraska Foundation to establish the Lou Sommerhauser Fund for Holocaust Education. The fund will provide annual resources to the Harris Center.

The Sommerhauser family provided the money to honor their father, Lou Sommerhauser, and their grandparents, Albert and Babette Sommerhauser, who died in a Nazi concentration camp.
