The Kleinman Holocaust Education Center

The Kleinman Holocaust Education Center (KHEC) documents the history of the Holocaust.

It tells the story of the perpetrator, what the Germans did to the Jews. It tells a Jewish story, recounting the circumstances, fate and actions of Jews – all Jews -- under unparalleled conditions of oppression and unrestrained efforts at their annihilation. It recounts the history of Orthodox Jews, who faced these conditions through the prism of moral and ethical considerations that govern Jewish religious thought and action.

The KHEC enables both Jewish and diverse audiences of all faiths and background to better understand the Holocaust in its entirety with a special emphasis on the Orthodox Jewish perspective and experience.
