The Suffolk Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding features the Holocaust
Collection (CSJHU). Its mission is to educate the community on historical events,
and to promote cultural understanding and respect for human dignity.
CSJHU is a not-for-profit organization sponsored in 2003 by the Board of Trustees
of Suffolk County Community College to encourage human rights awareness and foster
the values of respect and diversity. The CSJHU Board of Directors, reflecting a variety
of ethnic, racial and religious affiliations, are united in a devotion to building
a better community. They are assisted by an Advisory Council that represents the many
talents of Long Island residents who are committed to furthering the mission of CSJHU.
