About the Center

The mission of the Resnick Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies is to instill within current and future military leaders a sophisticated understanding of the Holocaust and other instances of genocide, and to inspire them to prevent future atrocities in their roles as military leaders. The Center provides a critical space for research, teaching, and collaboration in interdisciplinary studies of the past and present.   

The Center is internationally recognized as the hub of teaching, research, and practice for military education and training about mass atrocity and its prevention.  Its unique work ensures that the U.S. Military Academy, the Army, and the Department of Defense are permanently innovating, expanding the toolbox available for detection and prevention, and educating cohorts of officers equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to wrestle with humanity’s worst conflicts.

While the academy's core academic, military, and physical development programs receive federal support, many projects and activities that are of great value but outside the "core" designation receive minimal to zero funding from the government. The Superintendent has prioritized the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, which falls in the latter category, as an Academy need and as a means of providing a distinct and vital contribution to our nation. Creating this capacity requires private support, and thus the CHGS is part of West Point’s current “For Us All” capital campaign.
