Holocaust & Genocide Education in Dialogue: Russia and the USA

International Symposium

Rutgers University, Newark

November 6-8, 2012

On the 74th Anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights (CGHR) and its partner the Museum of Human Rights, Freedom and Tolerance (MHRFT) are proud to announce that the International Symposium on the Holocaust and Genocide Education is due to be conducted at the Rutgers University in Newark, NJ, on November 6-8, 2012.

The Symposium is conducted in order to exchange ideas and establish cooperation in developing educational programs on the Holocaust and genocide between American and Russian educators. The event is co-organized and co-sponsored by the MHRFT and CGHR with participation of the Russian Research and Educational Holocaust Center, the NJ State Commission on Holocaust Education, and the Bloomfield School District (NJ).

Seventy four years after the Kristallnacht, the education on the Holocaust and genocide is as important as ever, as shown by many tragic events and developments happening in the world today. It has expanded beyond the museums and universities into the mainstream to become a mandatory part of the school curriculum in many countries.

The Symposium will enable the Holocaust educators from Russia and the US to have such an exchange and establish a lasting partnership that will help improve the education on the Holocaust and genocide in both countries.
