The College of Charleston is receiving a $1.5 million donation to enhance Holocaust studies at the South Carolina school.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the donation comes from Anita Zucker, wife of the late Jerry Zucker, who was president and CEO of the InterTech Group in North Charleston. Anita Zucker became CEO and chairwoman when her husband died two years ago.
College of Charleston President George Benson says he's glad Charleston is becoming a center of Holocaust studies.
Charleston had the largest Jewish community of any city in America in the early 19th Century and still has a sizable Jewish community.
