Holocaust Center

Gross Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies

History

Holocaust
Located on the Main Floor of Ramapo College’s George T. Potter Library (Room L319), the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies has been educating the northern New Jersey community about Hitler’s war against the Jews, the Armenian Genocide and similar tragedies since 1980.

The Center is a member of the Association of Holocaust Organizations, and is part of the New Jersey State Commission on Holocaust Education network. The Center’s activities are funded through the support of private funders and Ramapo College. An advisory board provides valuable leadership and input on the Center’s activities.

Library/Resource Center

The Center’s extensive collection of books, periodicals, films, visual aids, videos and other media provide students and teachers at all levels with the means to learn and teach about the Holocaust and other genocides.

The holdings of the Center, including films as well as books, are searchable on the Potter Library’s online catalogue and circulate on loan on the same basis as other library materials.

During the workweek (M-F, 8:30-4:30), they may be accessed directly from the Center. At other times, patrons are asked to complete the request forms available on the Center’s door, deposit them in the space provided, and the ordered materials will be left for pick-up at the Circulation Desk on the Main Floor the next business day.

Programs

The Center fulfills its mission for people of all ages through teacher workshops, public lectures, college courses, student programs, film screenings, a video testimony project, a speakers’ bureau, and in-service presentations.
