Holocaust Awareness Week to explore ‘personal confrontations with the past’

Northeastern’s com­mit­ment to Holo­caust remem­brance is long and deep, dating back to 1977. Since then, the uni­ver­sity has hosted an annual week­long series of events designed to bear wit­ness to the Holo­caust while exploring issues arising out of the exter­mi­na­tion of 6 mil­lion Jews.

Northeastern’s 2017 Holo­caust Aware­ness Week—presented by the Holo­caust Aware­ness Com­mittee, the Col­lege of Social Sci­ences and Human­i­ties, the Office of the Provost, and the North­eastern Human­i­ties Center—will run from Monday, Jan. 23 to Thursday, Jan. 26.

Titled “Per­sonal Con­fronta­tions with the Past,” the com­mem­o­ra­tive series of events will include a sur­vivor talk, a film screening, and a number of edu­ca­tional lectures.

Here’s a pre­view of the events:
