Associated Centers
Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Point educates the Corps of Cadets about genocide and mass atrocity and inspires them as officers to the cause of prevention. Intrinsic to this mission is the imperative to better educate the country’s current and future military leaders on how genocides have occurred in the past and what can be done to prevent them in the future.

Center for Oral History
The West Point Center for Oral History is the premier oral history archive of the story of the American soldier, in both war and peace. Interview subjects currently include veterans of World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Bosnia, and the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also interview anyone whose work or life intersects with the story of the American soldier. In this way, the COH serves as a powerful learning tool for West Point cadets and as an important research center for historians and the general public.
