Mission

As the population of Holocaust survivors declines and antisemitism across the globe escalates, The Gross Family Center for the Study of Antisemitism and the Holocaust is on the front lines working to raise awareness of the Holocaust through powerful and educational public programming that addresses the history of the Holocaust, the singular most catastrophic genocide in history, and its consequences including the challenges of contemporary antisemitism.

 

“The Holocaust must always be prominent in our minds and in the conscience of humanity, and serve as an unequivocal warning in perpetuity. As a binding decree to uphold the sanctity of life, equality among men, freedom and peace.”

– Shimon Peres, Former Prime Minister of Israel

In addition to The Gross Family Center in the Palm Beaches, The Gross Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies offers innovative and expert educational public programming and teacher training at Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey, 30 minutes northwest of Manhattan.
