“The Farkas Center has been a gift to Mercy, San Francisco.  Having this partnership has allowed us to enhance our curriculum in the light of social justice issues and Catholic social teaching.  The students have been exposed and enlightened by a rich historical perspective of the Holocaust.  This educational experience has been invaluable for students, staff and the surrounding community.”
