Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
– George Santayana, philosopher

The mission of The Gross Family Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies is to assist students, educators, and the community-at-large in learning the history and lessons of the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, and other similar tragedies.  Through innovative educational programming we seek to promote an understanding of the pernicious consequences of anti-Semitism, racism, ethnic hatred, other forms of bigotry, and violations of human rights; and forge awareness, changed attitudes, and new methodologies for the protection of individual liberty and the prevention of genocide.
