Founded over 30 years ago, the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies has grown into a distinguished and unique academic center that provides an in-depth view of the Holocaust within a dedicated facility. The Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies has three full-time endowed professors, one full-time research assistant professor and two visiting assistant professors. As a distinguished academic and publicly-engaged center, we offer a unique multi-faceted learning environment supported by a research library housing the prestigious Arnold A. Jaffe Holocaust Library Collection. At the Center, we singularly focus on the study of the Holocaust and its legacies, providing an educational, engaging and transformative experience. Our diverse students play vital roles as educators, professionals and leaders in America and around the world.
