It is with great sadness that we announce that Jacqueline Berke, founding Director and Director Emerita of the Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study, passed away on Tuesday, June 13, 2017. Jackie, as we all knew her, was 94 years old. She was born and raised in New York, NY; and lived in Orange, and Millburn, before moving to Madison, NJ. A graduate of George Washington High School, NYC, she received her Bachelors degree from New York University, a Masters degree in Journalism from Columbia University, and a Masters degree in English from Rutgers University. She served as Professor of English at Drew University from 1960 to 1992, and as Professor Emerita for many years. She founded the Holocaust Center at Drew University in 1993, and served at various times as its Director, Co-Director and Director Emerita. She was the author of a popular rhetoric text book, Twenty Questions for the Writer and editor of the Center’s book, Moments in Time: A Collage of Holocaust Memories. She will be sorely missed.
