Remembering & Teaching the Holocaust in the 21st Century

Remembering & Teaching the Holocaust in the 21st Century

A special event brought to us by the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta, the International Remembrance Alliance, and the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust, the Galloway School, December 10, 6:30 p.m.

 

  • Why should Georgia students learn about the Holocaust?
  • What can we learn about preventing genocide and other atrocities through studying Nazi crimes of the 1930s and '40s?
  • And what are some of the early warning signs we should heed?
  • Is there a connection between anti-Semitism and racism?
  • Do individuals, as well as societies and nations, have a responsibility to speak out or take action?
  • And eight decades after the systematic persecution and murder of six million European Jews, as well as Roma (Gypsies) and Slavs, the disabled, and many others -- how can we best remember the victims, pay tribute, and ensure that such an event never happens again?

Come for an evening of exploring these and other questions about the relevance of the Holocaust in today's world, as international and regional experts discuss one of the starkest and most defining moments in human history.

You will hear from 

Dr. Mario Silva,

Chair (Canada) of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance;

Dr. Catherine Lewis,

Director of the Museum of History and Holocaust Education at Kennesaw State University;

Ms. Meghan McNeeley,

teacher at Clarke Middle School (Athens) and winner of the 2013 Spirit of Anne Frank Outstanding Educator Award;

Mr. Murray Lynn,

who was imprisoned at Auschwitz as a boy and liberated by American troops at age 15.

Dr. Cedric L. Suzman, moderator

Vice President of the World Affairs Council of Atlanta.

 

You will also see the newest Holocaust Learning Trunk from the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust, designed and decorated by students at Westside Middle School (Winder), and hear a prize-winning song composed and performed by students at Sweetwater Middle School (Lawrenceville).

 

There will be refreshments at 6:30 p.m., with the program beginning at 7:00. The event is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited and reservations are required by Friday, December 6.
