This website highlights many of the noteworthy projects the Center has carried out with the help of the Alliance and other members of the community. Please take time to read about the Holocaust Memorial Grove and the Anne Frank tree.

The Holocaust and Genocide Studies program at SSU, which has existed since 1983-84, is unique and nationally acclaimed.  We hope you will consider joining and supporting our educational mission.

Memorial Grove

The Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Grove at Sonoma State University is designed to honor survivors and victims of the genocides committed throughout the world, including the Native American Genocide, the Armenian Genocide, the Jewish Holocaust, the Cambodian Genocide, the Rwandan Genocide, and the current-day genocide in Darfur. Another aim of the monument is to recognize educators, scholars and activists working for awareness, tolerance and human rights across the globe.
