Since 1981, the Institute for Holocaust & Genocide Studies has offered educational programs for educators, students, and the community. Through education and unique programming, the Institute—a collaboration between RVCC and the Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties—promotes awareness, understanding, and compassion. The Center offers educational seminars, workshops, and presentations for students and teachers about the lessons learned from the Holocaust as well as genocides that continue today.
The Morris and Dorothy Hirsch Research Library of Holocaust and Genocide Studies is located on the second floor of the Evelyn S. Field Library at Raritan Valley Community College. Established in 1999, the library houses books, a video collection, and other reference materials for research and study as well as an area for classroom instruction. The Morris and Dorothy Hirsch Research Library of Holocaust and Genocide Studies offers an extensive collection of materials on the Holocaust, genocides, and diversity.
In Honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day
We are presenting the film
Who Will Write Our History
Executive Producer Nancy Spielberg
Tuesday, January 28th, 1 – 2:20 pm, Atrium Lounge
A Holocaust documentary about an archive of personal histories kept by Jews facing death in the Warsaw Ghetto. The movie's narrations come from these writings by people who were trapped in that tiny section of the Polish city, experiencing starvation and brutality at the hands of the Nazis. This film features extraordinary examples of courage and compassion.
This program is being presented by The RVCC Institute for Holocaust & Genocide Studies and The RVCC Evelyn S. Field Library. View Flyer
