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.
