About the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education
The National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education (NCCHE) makes scholarship on the Holocaust and other acts of genocide accessible to educators at every level. Seton Hill established this Center on its campus in 1987. The university initiated this national Catholic movement toward Holocaust studies in response to the urging of Pope John Paul II to recognize the significance of the SHOAH, the Holocaust, and to “promote the necessary historical and religious studies on this event which concerns the whole of humanity today” (Letter to Archbishop John L. May, 1987).
