Holocaust and Genocide Studies

Study online or on campus. Learn more and apply online

The Gratz College Holocaust and Genocide Studies program focuses on the Holocaust, its contemporary significance, and the broader phenomenon of genocide in modern times. The program is designed for educators in public and private schools, museum staff, community professionals, religious and lay leaders, those involved in interfaith dialogue, and adult learners taking classes for personal enrichment or credit.

Students have access to the Holocaust Oral History Archive at Gratz College's Tuttleman Library, which comprises one of the largest collections of audio-taped testimony in the United States. The Tuttleman Library itself houses a collection of over 2,200 titles of Holocaust and related resources. In addition, there are approximately 1,400 titles on World War II.

Students also have the opportunity to learn outside the classroom in study-travel tours. Contact Mindy Blechman, 215-635-7300 x 154 mblechman@gratz.edu for information on our upcoming Poland Trip
