Remembering the Past, Honoring the Present, Shaping the Future
The Holocaust Resource Center (HRC) is a joint initiative between Kean University and the Holocaust Resource Foundation, a private philanthropic organization founded by Holocaust survivors who rebuilt their lives in New Jersey.
The HRC was established in 1982 to foster and reinforce ongoing awareness of the Holocaust among students, teachers and community members. From its inception, the Foundation's founders recognized education as the integral driving force behind the organization.
Today, the Center continues to honor its founders by promoting messages of respect, understanding and empowerment. We fulfill our educational mandate in three ways: collections, commemorative events and teacher training.
