The Archives: Keeping History Alive

Chhange houses the only formal Holocaust/Genocide archives in New Jersey, preserving the historical materials of local Holocaust and genocide survivors.

Chhange has received donations of archival material from 200+ individuals. Materials held include artifacts, artwork, books, correspondence, diaries, clothing, memoirs, oral histories, photographs, and personal and government documents. Holocaust survivors and the families of Armenian Genocide survivors have entrusted Chhange with the care and safekeeping of these valuables because they recognize that these archival items continue to teach their history in our community - long after they can do it themselves. These archival items remain in our community, so our children and tomorrow’s children will be able to bear witness to their history.

Chhange: 

  • Preserves these historically valuable items
  • Ensures these materials are stored, handled, and displayed appropriately 
  • Makes them accessible to qualified researchers, scholars and historians
  • Makes them accessible to educators and their institutions of learning

If you are interested in donating to the Center's Archives or for additional information, please contact Dale Daniels, Executive Director of the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education at (732) 224-2074.
