Welcome

At the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center, we teach about the past in order to create a better future. 

Tolerance • Dignity • Respect

These values touch the essence of humanity. Lessons about them derived from the Holocaust must be taught and learned. But the lessons are only valuable if people internalize and apply them in their social attitudes and behaviors now.

Our Mission

The Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center is dedicated to Holocaust remembrance, education and the preservation of the memory of its victims. By teaching about the Holocaust, the Holocaust Center aims to promote awareness of the evils of hatred and prejudice and to inspire ethical behavior.

Services

In addition to our extensive Holocaust collection of printed books and hundreds of films on VHS tape and DVD’s housed at the CJL Library/Media Center, we offer meaningful programs and seminars for educators and the general community, an active Speakers Bureau, school outreach programs, educational consultation and an annual film series.
