The Emil A. and Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Yeshiva University

Yeshiva University announces the creation of the Emil A. and Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Yeshiva University. The Center’s consequential mission will be to train both school and university educators in the field of Holocaust and Genocide Studies as well as to provide programming that seeks to combat contemporary prejudices and hateful ideologies.

The Center will focus on Holocaust education and will create an interdisciplinary master’s degree in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, incorporating history, Jewish studies, literature, law, philosophy, and social work. It will also develop a certificate for those who wish more concentrated study. The Center will conduct academic research and organize public events to further the goal of extending Holocaust education to people of all ages and backgrounds. By leveraging the uniquely qualified faculty and resources of Yeshiva University’s undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools and affiliates, the Center will be an impactful and essential focus of research, education, teacher training, and public programming. At the same time, the Center will provide valuable resources for the emerging generation’s contemporary fight against anti-Semitism and prejudices throughout the globe.
