Telling survivor stories of courage, resilience and survival--and the lessons learned about intolerance and hatred--are core to the mission of the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education. Our expanded Survivor Histories section has three new slide shows and downloadable stories on local survivors Gerard Blumenthal, Abe Chapnick and Eva Wiener.
Please join us for a very special evening of Interfaith Dialogue on the topic of The Pope and the Jews.

Your community needs us! We need you!
Your support is essential to Chhange's mission of providing outstanding services and programs to your community.
“We want to be sure the Center’s work goes on long after we’re no longer here.”
It was September 2000 when Marilyn and Richie Finkel walked into the Center for the first time and became Tuesday morning volunteers. Like clockwork they came, week after week performing the myriad of essential tasks.
Sign up early for the Third Annual 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education at Brookdale Community College.

Using Diaries as Primary Sources
Study of the Holocaust in the Netherlands: Etty: A Conversation is an in-school program for high schools, based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum.
Plan a performance for this school year.
We have just added another descendant story to our collection of Generations stories. This newest story comes from Steve Besserman, New Jersey resident and filmmaker. Both of Steve's parents were Holocaust survivors and Steve tells how he encouraged his mother to document and chronicle her horrific experiences.
Chhange is reaching out to descendants and family members of survivors—the closest witnesses to their experiences—to join its work in preserving, honoring and carrying on the survivors’ legacy. If you are a descendant and would like to share your story with others, please contact us.
