The Holocaust Education and Resource Center of Rhode Island
We strive to reduce prejudice and the injustice of bigotry against all minorities by teaching the current generation about the Holocaust. We believe that by teaching about these dangers, and the horrors to which they may lead, we can effect positive change in our society.

Why is having a Holocaust Education & Resource Center important?
Click here to hear what people have to say.

The Holocaust Education and Resource Center of Rhode Island serves to bear witness to the Holocaust and to honor those who perished. We strive to reduce prejudice against all minorities by teaching our community, especially its youth, about the experience of the Jews, and of the suffering of other peoples because of bigotry.

Our facility houses a library, artifacts from the era, an audio-visual collection, and a memorial garden. Materials are available for check-out by teachers, students and group leaders, and our facility is open to the public. Our speakers present to area schools, and survivors of the Holocaust share their personal experiences with students. We also offer workshops for educators.
