International Grants

The Holocaust Research and Education Center

The Holocaust Research and Education Center

In 2010, a three-year grant from Genesis Philanthropy Group allowed the Holocaust Research and Education Center to develop its organizational capacity and ultimately expand its activities and foster international cooperation and partnerships. The grant allowed the Center to hire an internationally known Holocaust studies expert who is responsible for fundraising, expanding the Center's Internet presence and launching new projects and programs. At the end of the three-year grant, the Center is expected to be able to fund this position independently.

The Center's mission is to preserve the memory of the Shoah in the territories of the FSU, energizing the efforts of Jewish communities, educators, researchers, school students and youth organizations in preserving information about victims and collecting survivor testimonies.
