The Harriet & Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center

The lessons of the Holocaust offer an unparalleled opportunity to address the cultural, educational, and civic needs of our diverse community. The Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center (KHC) is neither a museum nor a library: We are a learning laboratory where students, survivors, and community members learn through their hearts, minds, and actions.

Our Mission

To use the lessons of the Holocaust to educate current and future generations about the ramifications of unbridled prejudice, racism, and stereotyping.

EVENTS

We regularly host events each year connected to the memorialization of the Holocaust as well as an annual colloquium on global human rights and mass atrocity issues designed and led by College faculty with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant.

EXHIBITS

For over 30 years, we have researched and presented original exhibitions on the Holocaust and other mass atrocities, sharing our work with local, regional, and national audiences. Our permanent exhibition tells the story of the Holocaust in Germany, from pre-World War II through to the end of the war and includes a mixture of local artifacts and archival materials from the KHC’s collection.
