Who We Are

The Weidner Foundation was established in 1996 by John Weidner’s wife Naomi to provide leadership, guidance, and support for The John H. Weidner Center. The Center generates various programs and maintains a library of international materials whose purpose is to document and encourage non-institutionalized altrusitic behaviour in men and women today. The Weidners intention was to commemorate the lives of those people with whom he heroically worked as well as those for whom he courageously provided solace, refuge, and safety during the Holocaust of World War II and thereafter through these programs and collections.
