The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies (CHGS) was founded by Dr. Stephen C. Feinstein in 1997 as an interdisciplinary research center at the University of Minnesota. Feinstein was a visionary who established CHGS as a premier educational, research, and outreach institution with international renown; his legacy includes the substantial collections of Holocaust and genocide-related art he curated and the community exhibitions and partnerships he coordinated. Feinstein passed away unexpectedly in 2008, and in 2012, Professor Alejandro Baer was named the Feinstein Chair and Director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
