The Strassler Family Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark
University is an exciting forum for education about the Holocaust, the
Armenian Genocide, and other genocides around the globe. Dedicated to
teaching, research, and public service, the Center trains the Holocaust
historians and genocide studies scholars of the future. The mission of
the Center reaches beyond the boundaries of the University: to provide a
lecture series free of charge and open to the public; to educate
professionals of many fields about genocide and the Holocaust; to use
scholarship to address current problems stemming from the murderous
past; and to engage the world in which we live by providing an educated
voice in the public arena.
Clark University is a private, co-educational liberal-arts research
university with 2,100 undergraduate and 900 graduate students. Since its
founding in 1887 as the first all-graduate school in the United States,
Clark has challenged convention with innovative programs such as the
International Studies Stream, the Strassler Family Center for Holocaust
and Genocide Studies and the accelerated BA/MA programs with the fifth
year tuition-free for eligible students. The University is featured in
Loren Pope’s book, "Colleges That Change Lives."

releases on each event (with the exception of the first one listed,
