The face of the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education took on new dimensions of diversity on Feb. 15 as three newly appointed members joined the body charged with promoting Holocaust/genocide education throughout the state.

The new members are Dennis Papazian, PhD, of Woodcliff Lake, a professor of history at the University of Michigan-Dearborn and director of the university’s Armenian Research Center; Cecile Seiden of Livingston, a retired educator who was a hidden child in Belgium during the Holocaust; and Mabel Williams of Ewing Township, manager of equal-employment opportunities and affirmative action for the NJ Department of Education. All are appointees of former Gov. Richard Codey.
