Beth B. Cohen brings decades of experience as a historian and educator to her role as the Director of Education at the JFCS Holocaust Center. Her PhD in Holocaust history (Clark University’s Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies) and her master’s degree in education (Harvard University) combine her lifelong commitment to and belief in the transformative power of Holocaust and genocide education. Beth is the author of two books on survivors’ postwar experiences and how they adapted to life in the aftermath of trauma. She has also been a consultant to documentary films, educational organizations, and museums. Most recently, she developed a permanent exhibit on the Holocaust for the United Nations headquarters. Throughout her years of teaching, she encourages students of all ages to think critically about history and human behavior, and raise questions, especially those for which there are no easy answers.  During the current climate of rising antisemitism and hate crimes, Beth is eager to collaborate through her role with the JFCS Holocaust Center with educators and their students to address these challenges confronting us.
