KHRCA Colloquium 2016 

This year's Colloquium series seeks to put the past in conversation with the present by exploring the history of genocide and refugees. We will explore the genocides that create refugee populations, and examine the challenges facing refugee populations as they seek to find asylum in countries and communities that are often resistant to accepting them.

The Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives Colloquium series is supported by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed on this site do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The Making of the Jacket from Dachau
Sunday, October 30th, 2016 at 1:00pm


The KHRCA unveils our newest original exhibition that tells the story of Holocaust survival, chance encounters, and how a single artifact can weave a narrative of justice, identity, and a search for home. This exhibit is co-curated by Cary Lane, Ph.D., the KHRCA 2016-2017 Curator in- Residence and assistant professor of English at Queensborough Community College. Join us for the official public opening as Dr.Lane discusses the process of research and discovery that led to the development of this new exhibition.
