The Next Chapter

The Next Chapter enables high school youth to develop profound connections with Holocaust survivors. By participating in the program, students build a special community of social responsibility and genocide awareness and are awarded 40 hours of community service.

Through the Next Chapter program, students learn how to:

  • Meet with Holocaust survivors and pass on their stories
  • Study the history of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide through text, archival items, and film
  • Create a personal reflection project

The Next Chapter is offered both in San Francisco and on the Peninsula. Students will meet in a seminar once every three weeks from January through May. Students will hear from different Holocaust survivors with unique experiences several times throughout the semester.

The application period for the Next Chapter 2019-2020 is now open! To request an application for this year’s program, please complete our inquiry form and a staff person will be in touch.

For more information, please contact Yedida Kanfer, Manager of Library, Archives, and Education Services, at or call 415-449-3748.
