The JFCS Holocaust Center is dedicated to the remembrance, research, documentation, and education about the Holocaust. As Northern California’s primary resource for education about the Holocaust and other genocides, our work increases awareness about Jewish history and the causes and consequences of antisemitism, racism, and bigotry. Through a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide, our goal is to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in future generations.

The JFCS Holocaust Center works with public school districts, private schools, Jewish day and supplementary schools, and individual educators to design curriculum and lesson plans, and to provide specialized teacher training and consultation. It makes available curriculum guides, books, DVDs, films, slides, maps, and posters to make history come alive in the classroom.

We continue to remember
The JFCS Holocaust Center is comprised of the Tauber Holocaust Library and Education Program, the Manovill Holocaust History Fellowship, the William J. Lowenberg Speakers Bureau, the Oral History Project, the Pell and Manovill University Fellowship, as well as The Next Chapter.

All of these programs operate on the generous support of our donors.
