Holocaust Center opening

Holocaust Center opening

The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College would like to invite the community to the Ribbon-Cutting ceremony for our new Center. Please join us at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 14, when we will formally celebrate the Center’s new home adjacent to the Bankier Library on the Lincroft main campus.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony also features the art exhibit, “Recovering Memory: The Art of Claire Boren.” Claire, who was a hidden child during the Holocaust, had repressed most of her memories of the war.  These memories began to emerge through her abstract art and resurfaced in almost every project. This exhibit will be on display through December 17.

The new Chhange Center adds major enhancements to its existing resources with an exhibit space, a smart classroom, a videoconferencing center and the only Holocaust/genocide archives in New Jersey. Chhange will not only be able to host many more classes in its new facility, but with technology that includes videoconferencing, survivors, educators and scholars can visit classrooms across the state and the nation from Chhange’s classroom. 

For more information, visit chhange.org. To reserve a group visit, please call 732 224-1889. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Dale Daniels
Executive Director, Chhange
