This chapter offers an obituary for Fred Schwartz, the founder of the Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation. Schwartz was an inspiring entrepreneur and philanthropist who dedicated his life to preserving the memory of Holocaust victims and preventing future genocides. A pioneer of Polish–Jewish reconciliation and the preservation of Jewish heritage in Poland, he created several related non-profit organizations. Schwartz's innovative approach inspired initiatives within his organizations that fostered cross-cultural exchange through programmes, training courses, and seminars around the world. His tireless commitment to making the world a better place has already had an unmistakable impact on thousands of young people, which will endure for many generations.
