Welcome to the Holocaust Center of Greater Pittsburgh

Our  Mission

The Holocaust was a unique historical event; the lessons we learn from it are universal. We are committed to education about the events of the Holocaust, commemoration of those who suffered and triumphed, and documentation of the stories of survivors, liberators and protectors. The mission of Holocaust Center is to transform community and individual attitudes and behaviors by recognizing, understanding and remembering the atrocities of the Holocaust.  Our programs and exhibitions heighten public awareness, serve to honor survivors, and keep memories alive.

Our Strategic Goals

The Holocaust Center will primarily use the events of the Jewish Holocaust Experience as a means to teach tolerance to middle and high school students in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and Northern West Virginia.We will also engage with other organizations, individuals and institutions around programming and conversations as to the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust and its lessons.

We will further work to memorialize and commemorate the legacy of those whose lives were impacted by the events of the Holocaust and the events themselves.




We must maintain the momentum behind our work in your community.  Please consider a gift to this year’s Annual Friends Campaign through our secure online donation page so that we can respond to every request for help teaching the powerful lessons of the Holocaust.
