More About the Bristol Holocaust Center


Under the auspices of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Bedford’s Holocaust Education and Memorial Committee, a variety of faith communities have worked to sponsor events in the southeastern Massachusetts area dealing with the Holocaust.

And, for the last 10 years, Bristol Community College has sponsored a course entitled, “Remembering the Holocaust in Literature and History.” To augment both of these projects, the Holocaust and Genocide Center found its home at Bristol.  

Through the Bristol Holocaust and Genocide Center's exploration into the lives of victims, perpetrators, rescuers and bystanders many horrific and heroic events come to light. The Bristol Holocaust Center sponsors speakers, workshops, conferences and has a small library of Holocaust and genocide material for use by the Bristol community and the general public.

The Bristol Holocaust and Genocide Center provides historical information, educational experiences, and multimedia resources to communicate the suffering, pain and deaths of innocent millions during  the Holocaust and other genocides.
