The Holocaust Studies Initiative

The FIU Holocaust Studies Initiative seeks to establish a university-community partnership in expanding our classroom and public offerings related to the study of the Shoah. Building on our past history of high quality lecture series, invited speakers, educational performances, and museum exhibitions, we also draw on the collective strengths of our faculty and facilities, including the collections of the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU and The Wolfsonian-FIU, in order to promote the relevance of the study of the Holocaust in South Florida and beyond. Our ongoing engagement includes online course development, lecture series, continuing education, scholars-in-residence, and more. Our aim is to strengthen university and community Holocaust education for the 21st century from an integrated and multidisciplinary perspective.
