Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School, Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies
The Program in Holocaust and Human Rights Studies was established at the Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School in the Fall of 2003. The original funding for the Program was a court-awarded grant of an unclaimed portion of the settelment from part of a holocaust claims litigation. The Program is dedicated to the memory of these and other victims of the Holocaust.
The Program's mission focuses on legal education, research/publication and advocacy on issues related to the Holocaust, genocide and human rights. The goal is to illuminate the past, with a view toward preventing such genocides in the future and aiding the victims of human rights abuses whereever they occur.
