Grubman Teaching Trunk

The Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College invites you to participate in the Grubman Teaching Trunk Program. The Trunk is designed to honor the memory of Simon Grubman, a survivor of the Lodz ghetto and other Nazi camps. The Grubman family has been a longtime supporter of the Cohen Center’s work. Their gifts allowed the Cohen Center to develop the extensive Grubman Children’s book collection now located in the Charles and Judith Hildebrandt Collection in the Mason Library at Keene State College.
