    The SLA New Jersey Chapter presents:

    A Tour of the Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University
    1000 Morris Avenue, Union, NJ 07083

    Wednesday, May 8, 2019


    The Holocaust Resource Center (HRC)
    is a joint initiative between Kean University and the Holocaust Resource Foundation, a private philanthropic organization founded by Holocaust survivors who rebuilt their lives in New Jersey.

     The HRC was established in 1982 to foster and reinforce ongoing awareness of the Holocaust among students, teachers and community members. It features a unique oral history collection containing more than 200 testimonies from Holocaust survivors, liberators, and rescuers. From its inception, the Foundation's founders recognized education as the integral driving force behind the organization.

     Today, the Center continues to honor its founders by promoting messages of respect, understanding and empowerment. We fulfill our educational mandate in three ways: collections, commemorative events and teacher training.

    I'm trying to organize a group of people to go together from Princeton Junction.  Please let me know if you are interested.  I can pick people up in Lawrenceville or Princeton on the way to Pr Jct train station.

     

    I am going to plan on driving to  Princeton Junction (and parking there), taking the 3:26 Northeast corridor to Elizabeth, and taking an Uber or begging someone to pick me up at Elizabeth Station.

     

    Please let me know if you're interested in joining me.  I will plan on staying for the dinner and then taking the train back.  If you live near Princeton Junction, I can give you a ride home if we can work out the logistics.

     

    Hope to see you May 8th,

    Elana
