The Holocaust Center is a program of Jewish Family and Children’s Services (JFCS) of San Francisco, the Peninsula, and Marin and Sonoma counties. JFCS is dedicated to the remembrance, research, documentation and education about the Holocaust. As Northern California’s primary resource for education about the Holocaust and other genocides, their work increases awareness about Jewish history and the causes and consequences of antisemitism, racism, and bigotry. Through a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide, the JFCS Holocaust Center’s goal is to inspire moral courage and social responsibility in future generations.
