Holocaust Education Week 2019 Event

“Holocaust Education for a New Generation”

Presented by Oraynu Congregation for Humanistic Judaism and Don Heights Unitarian Congregation

Findings from a recent study showed that 22% of millennials haven’t heard / are not sure if they have heard of the Holocaust and 62% did not know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. What are the consequences of such knowledge gaps?

Speaker: Leora Schaefer, Executive Director of Facing History and Ourselves Canada, an organization that uses the lessons of history to inspire teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate.

Everyone welcome; no charge. Kindly RSVP.
