Join Us on Our Journey

The Ferencz Institute for Ethics, Human Rights and the Holocaust

Remember the Past. Protect the Future. ACT NOW.

We are rapidly approaching a time when there will be no Holocaust survivors alive to tell their stories. We must act now to preserve their legacy and ensure that “Never Again” is more than just a rallying cry.

Why The Ferencz Institute?

The lessons of the Holocaust transcend traditional boundaries. They are INTERGENERATIONAL, INTERFAITH, INTERPROFESSIONAL, and INTERNATIONAL. Holocaust education must be universally relevant and serve to promote justice, tolerance, equality and human dignity for all. Through our powerful programming, we ENGAGE, EDUCATE, and EMPOWER future leaders to become upstanders and active agents of social change.  We give a voice to the generation before us who were silenced, and help the next generation find and amplify their voice.

Our Impact

The Ferencz Institute has created groundbreaking opportunities for Holocaust education across the globe.

A partnership with the USC Shoah Foundation to create a first of its kind multimedia clearinghouse for education and research related to medicine, ethics and the Holocaust

“Medicine and Morality: Lessons from the Holocaust and COVID-19,” a Holocaust Remembrance Day event featuring internationally renowned scholars in Holocaust education and bioethics, including Dr. Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, and Dr. Anthony Fauci

A partnership with the Greek Orthodox Church which brings together members of different religions, cultures and generations to teach them the importance of learning about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance for society

“Journey of Remembrance” - The Davidson College Men’s Basketball Team trip to Auschwitz along with Holocaust survivor Eva Kor, an immersive learning experience that inspired the creation of the College Athletes for Respect and Equality (CARE) Initiative

Our Programs

Our signature programs are part of a comprehensive educational platform that reaches a diverse audience, ranging from health professionals and social activists to lifelong learners and changemakers of tomorrow.

  • 1. International Fellowship Program

    Students and/or professionals chosen from an international pool of applicants will have the opportunity to work closely with the Ferencz Institute's network of scholars for a two-year period. Upon completion of the fellowship, they will be expected to make a lasting contribution to the field through a publication or the development of a program or course at their home institution.

  • 2. Emerging Scholars Program

    Students at the undergraduate, graduate, or professional school level who are interested in studying ethics, human rights and the Holocaust will be provided financial assistance to alleviate costs associated with research and conference attendance. Emerging scholars will have access to the Ferencz Institute's extensive resources and be matched with mentors who will offer guidance and support.

  • 3. Lecture Series

    Contributions will fund annual lectures given on International Holocaust Remembrance Day and/or Yom Hashoah on topics of interest within the field of medicine, ethics and the Holocaust.
