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:
