Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies

The Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies is dedicated to the study, memorialization, and teaching of the Holocaust and other genocides at local and national levels. The institute incorporates a robust body of research from the UMass Amherst faculty and graduate student community, houses an extensive library and archive, and features a collection of photographs, film, art, and artifacts. A permanent teaching exhibition, “Germany, Roth 1933-1942,” is open to the general public and students of all ages, and gives visitors the chance to engage with history in the presence of survivors and docents.
