Tammy Glied was born in Toronto to Holocaust survivors Bill and Marika Glied. Her father, Bill, was extremely active in Holocaust education prior to his passing in February 2018. Tammy has taken the initiative to continue her father’s legacy by working to pass the torch of Holocaust remembrance to the next generation, a responsibility she does not take lightly. Tammy feels it is more vital than ever to bear witness to the stories of our Holocaust Heroes. The next chapter of Holocaust remembrance will rest on our ability to continue to Holocaust education in a world without Survivors. Tammy is on the forefront of sharing testimony through the digital lens, which in today’s world has become fundamental to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust are never forgotten. She is working on merging traditional testimonies and with new technologies that many students use daily. Adapting to the times allows March of the Living Toronto to capitalize on the power and potential of the new digital media landscape to help students and our community connect to history in a meaningful and lasting way.
