The Holocaust Educational Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization founded by Theodore Zev Weiss in 1976[1] and dedicated to the support of teaching and research about the Holocaust at the university level.[2] It has helped establish courses on the Holocaust at over 400 colleges.[1]

On July 9th, 2013 the HEF was integrated into Northwestern University.[1]


The Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University offers several programs: the Summer Institute on the Holocaust and Jewish Civilization; the biennial Lessons and Legacies of the Holocaust Conference; the Sharon Abramson Research Grants; and teaching grants to support college-level teaching in Holocaust Studies.
