Holocaust Studies Project

For many people, the Holocaust remains the exemplary case of genocide. From 1933, when Hitler took power until the collapse of the Nazi regime in 1945, six million Jews, as well as other groups such as Roma, homosexuals, the disabled, and Jehovah’s Witnesses, were systematically targeted for destruction. Most of the family of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish Jew who coined the term “genocide” and later taught at Rutgers, was among them. As part of the “Year of Lemkin,” CGHR is formalizing its work on Holocaust studies and Raphael Lemkin. The Holocaust Studies Project will be formally launched when it hosts the 2015 Kristallnacht commemoration in partnership with the New Jersey Holocaust Commission. It will include annual events, including programming marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27).
