The Fred Marcus Holocaust Studies Collection of the Center for Judaic Studies

Fred Marcus (1924-2002) was a beloved Jewish educator who was born in Berlin and spent the war years in Shanghai, China as a refugee from Nazi Germany. For many years, Fred served as a member of the Speakers Bureau of the Holocaust Awareness Institute, teaching students and members of churches and synagogues about the Holocaust. Fred's library was donated to the Holocaust Awareness Institute in his memory by his beloved wife, Audrey Friedman Marcus.
