SEU's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education

Message from President Crosby

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

"Eighty years after the Holocaust began, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we commemorate the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on January 27,1945. Today, we remember the millions of lives lost during the Holocaust and reflect on the lives lost since as a result of actions of hate and genocide.

The lessons of this history have never been more relevant and following the SEU mission of leadership in service to others, we must take action to end hate and violence in our communities."

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Center is to provide education and remembrance of the Holocaust and other genocides, to facilitate Catholic/Jewish dialogue and interfaith understanding, and to do so with high academic and scholarly standards, as well as standards consistent with the teachings of Vatican Council II.

The Center aims to provide a variety of programs, courses, resources, and other educational opportunities to SEU undergraduate and graduate students and the community, as well as for teachers to enable them to help their own students meet the New Jersey State mandate for education about the Holocaust and genocide.
