Chief Executive Officer, Holocaust Center for Humanity

Michelle Saddler

Seattle, WA


The Holocaust Center for Humanity teaches the lessons of the Holocaust, inspiring students of all ages to confront bigotry and indifference, promote human dignity, and take action. The Holocaust Center for Humanity builds courageous communities by teaching and honoring the history, stories, and lessons of the Holocaust. These lessons give people of all ages an empathetic lens to view today’s complex issues and see the role they can each play in fighting hate.


Since 1989, the Holocaust Center for Humanity has taught the history of the Holocaust so that local survivors, their families, and millions of other victims will not be forgotten, and their stories would inspire positive action. Through education, events, field trips, museum visits, and community programs focused throughout Washington state, the Holocaust Center for Humanity remains dedicated to fighting hate by educating students, teachers, and the general public about the dangers of intolerance and the difference each one of us can make. Broadly, the Holocaust Center’s work can be categorized in three major groups of: Museum, Programs & Outreach, and Teacher Resources.


The work of the Holocaust Center for Humanity has never been more important than in this time of political divisiveness, ethnic violence, rising anti-Semitism, and other hate crimes. The next CEO of the Holocaust Center for Humanity will take the reins from one of the organization’s founding leaders to further raise the Center’s visibility, to scale to more schools, reach more audiences, connect the past to today, build organizational strength, and secure our future. The next CEO will continue to expand partnerships and impact, and to help ensure that current and future generations know the stories and apply the lessons of the Holocaust.


The next CEO will have the unique opportunity to lead and grow the organization to even greater levels of education, visibility, and impact. This leader will serve as the face and ambassador of the organization and will also partner with the Board of Directors to remain true to the Center’s mission of demonstrating the Holocaust’s relevance to our world today.


With the support and partnership of a committed and talented Board, as well as a skilled and passionate team of 16 staff professionals, the Chief Executive Officer is responsible for leading this unique organization with a $2.7 million operating budget, significant reserve assets and first-hand, personal stories from more than 300 Washington-area Holocaust survivors. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CEO is responsible for the overall leadership and growth of the organization to advance the mission, while safeguarding and growing the organization’s community, human, and financial resources.  


The anticipated salary range for this position is $170,000 to $215,000, commensurate with experience and qualifications.
