“CHGS was a vital part of my graduate education.  It provided me with opportunities to present and gain feedback on my research at the interdisciplinary graduate workshop, Holocaust, Genocide and Mass Violence. Through CHGS, I was also able to help plan a university conference on genocide and network with international genocide scholars and educators.”

Hollie Nyseth Brehm, assistant professor of sociology at The Ohio State University

“The opportunities provided by the Badzin Fellowship have helped me grow as a scholar, enabling me to gain confidence in my work through the presentation of my findings and sharing my expertise with others interested in the topic of genocide.”

Wahutu Siguru, 2013/2014 Badzin Fellow, PhD candidate in sociology

“I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for the [Holocaust educator] workshop. I gained knowledge of the topics, as well as teaching strategies. It was also very momentous because I had never had the opportunity to meet a survivor and hear part of their history.”

Participant in 2013 CHGS summer institute, The Holocaust in European Memory

“We gave to CHGS because of the importance of continuing to shine a bright light on the issue of genocide, hatred, and intolerance in our world. Whether it was the Holocaust 75 years ago, or the atrocities we see in the media today, we need a constant reminder of what was, and what is likely to happen again if we don’t all make an effort to talk to one another, learn, and hopefully evolve further.”
