  Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Point (CHGS) educates the Corps of Cadets about genocide and mass atrocity and inspires them as officers to the cause of prevention. Intrinsic to this mission is the imperative to better educate the countryís current and future military leaders on how genocides have occurred in the past and what can be done to prevent them in the future.

Vision
West Pointís Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies is the only center of its kind at the service academies and operates as an inter-academy and inter-service hub. The Center links all branches of the military, including the service academies, the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and Department of Defense (DoD) professional military education programs through research, interdisciplinary curricular development, and common programming for the development of military leaders. As a creator and facilitator, the Center serves as a key resource for the DoD as the nation seeks to find better means of detecting and preventing mass atrocity. The Center further connects the Armed Forces with civilian academic institutions and non-governmental entities world-wide. The unparalleled reach of the CHGS makes it distinct, allowing our countryís current and future leaders to think deeply about the causes, contests, and consequences of genocide.

  The United States Military Academy at West Point, founded in 1802, offers a museum and tours of its Gothic Revival-style campus located at West Point, NY in Orange County.

A Brief History of West Point: "West Point's role in our nation's history dates back to the Revolutionary War, when both sides realized the strategic importance of the commanding plateau on the west bank of the Hudson River. General George Washington considered West Point to be the most important strategic position in America. Washington personally selected Thaddeus Kosciuszko, one of the heroes of Saratoga, to design the fortifications for West Point in 1778, and Washington transferred his headquarters to West Point in 1779. Continental soldiers built forts, batteries and redoubts and extended a 150-ton iron chain across the Hudson to control river traffic. Fortress West Point was never captured by the British, despite Benedict Arnold's treason. West Point is the oldest continuously occupied military post in America.
