This year our interfaith commemoration and program will feature Holocaust Survivor, Joseph Alexander. He will speak about his experiences surviving twelve Nazi concentration camps. This is a rare opportunity to hear firsthand, the memories and vivid descriptions of the horrific conditions in the concentration camps. All are invited and encouraged to listen to his extraordinary story of courage, perseverance and hope.

Founded in 1958, as a community based organization, the Burbank Human Relations Council seeks to eliminate barriers that separate people from each other and build bridges of understanding. BHRC has continued to serve the Burbank community as a resource, and for advocacy. We promote equality and understanding through education and action. We are not funded by the city, or any other entity. We are an all-volunteer, fully independent organization.
We are always looking for new members and volunteers to help us make our vision a reality in the Burbank community. You can support the goals of the Burbank Human Relations Council through your membership. We look forward to you joining us !
