GHMEC: Resources for Students

 

Our mission is to teach people about the past and to educate them for the future through the painful lessons of the Holocaust. Our objective is to reduce prejudice and lessen hatred, bigotry, bullying, and violence against all groups.

At the Goodwin Holocaust Museum and Education Center (GHMEC), we are dedicated to teaching about the Holocaust, preserving the experiences of those who survived, and honoring the memory of those who perished. According to statistics from the FBI, NJ is home to the 2nd highest number of hate crimes in the country. Teaching the lessons of the Holocaust is an important and effective means to reduce prejudice and affect attitudes to lessen hatred, bigotry, and violence against all groups. We hope that our programs will become an essential part of your "Character Education and Anti-Bullying Curriculums."
