To Remember…and to Teach
The Cohen Center serves as a research and resource center for the teaching of the Holocaust and genocide through Keene State College’s academic programs. The center also provides materials for educators at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels.
Looking for classroom presentations or lesson plans? The center provides educator support through lesson plans, workshops, summer institutes, and more. Browse our educator pages for a full array of resources.

Meeting and studying with others interested and invested in this work is more than a way to get support as an educator, but an opportunity to affirm life and hope in a confused and wounded world. Thank you!”

The Cohen Center team is grateful to the 800+ attendees who joined us for this year's Holocaust Memorial Lecture. Many partners and supporters came together in order to make this event possible. Some of those important contributors included: Jan and Rick Cohen, Michele Kuiawa, Misty Kennedy, Dr. Celia Rabinowitz, Veronica Rosa and her team in Advancement, the Office of Marketing and Communications at KSC, and dozens of others.
For those who were unable to attend the live event, please note that a video recording will be posted on this website in mid-October once it has been approved by the filmmakers and their teams.
