Thanks to the generous support of its donors, the Holocaust Studies Program is currently housed in a 3,500 square-foot facility located in the Erik Jonsson Academic Center. These facilities, officially dedicated in 2011, offer students a unique environment in which they can work that include a reading room, media center, and places for both group and quiet study.
The Jaffe Library Reading Room located within the Ackerman Center provides access to many of the core texts and videos from the Arnold A. Jaffe Holocaust Library Collection relating to the study of the Holocaust. Because this is not a lending library, the materials are always available for the students to reference.
The offices of the Holocaust Studies Program’s three endowed professors, Dr. Zsuzsanna Ozsváth, Dr. David Patterson, and Dr. Nils Roemer and two visiting assistant professors, Dr. Sarah Valente and Dr. Pedro Gonzalez Corona, are also located within the center. This allows the students to have greater access to the professors, which is another of the many benefits that the center offers to its students.
