Winter ~ 2022

As we begin this new year

we may find ourselves navigating down not only the snowy, icy roads,

but also with a resourceful everyday life.

The South Jersey Holocaust Coalition 

has been on hiatus due to pandemic concerns

and the logistics of dependable scheduling of events.

We have so many ideas!

But we must wait a little longer, be patient, and hope for a return to in-person community.


Check here again soon. We will post as we go forward

and until then...

Hope to see you soon,

healthy, safe, committed.






The South Jersey Holocaust Coalition

is pleased and honored to host

Internationally Esteemed Scholar, Professor, Author, and Film Maker

A Teleconference: Camus' The Plague

"And since a dead man has no substance unless one actually sees him dead, a hundred million corpses broadcast through history are no more than a puff of smoke in the imagination."


"This is the time when those who have nothing to do venture out on the boulevards. Most of them determined to counteract the plague by a lavish display of luxury."

Albert Camus, THE PLAGUE
