Upcoming Events This Spring

KHRCA Cinema Series
The Great Dictator
Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 at 12:10pm


Chaplin plays two totally opposite roles in his first “talkie”, giving a superb display of his boundless talent for both inspired comedy and powerful drama. One of his masterfully drawn characters is a Jewish barber facing the constant threat of storm troopers and religious persecution. The other is the great dictator, Hynkel, a brilliant lampoon of Adolph Hitler that is awesome proof of Chaplin’s pantomime genius. Released in 1941, 125 minutes.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center & Archives is to use the lessons of the Holocaust to educate current and future generations about the ramifications of unbridled prejudice, racism and stereotyping.

Since its inception, the Holocaust Resource Center and Archives has relied heavily on State and City funding. In these uncertain economic times, and in order to ensure the future of this center and its critical work, these funding sources are not enough. Please help ensure that the voices and lessons of the past can continue to shape the citizens of the future.
