Hank Knight, Cohen Center

Cohen Center

The Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies is much more than a resource center, though that is how it began in 1983. The Center is located at Keene State College in rural New Hampshire. We are charged by our founder, [Dr. Charles Hildebrandt][4] "To Remember…and to Teach." Rooted in the College’s public liberal arts mission, the Cohen Center is a leading educational center devoted to the memory and study of the Holocaust and genocide.
