Holo­caust Commemoration

This annual event brings the North­eastern Uni­ver­sity com­mu­nity together to remember the Holo­caust not only as a his­tor­ical fact but also as a memo­rial to its vic­tims. This year the event will include pre­sen­ta­tions by Gideon Klein Scholar Madelyn Stone as well as Jef­frey Burds, an asso­ciate pro­fessor of history.

The Gideon Klein Award sup­ports a stu­dent exploring the work of a Jewish artist or musi­cian who was per­se­cuted by the Nazis. The scholar is asked to create an orig­inal work, pre­pare a per­for­mance, or do research. Stone’s pre­sen­ta­tion is titled “‘Reality is the satire’: The will to hope in the writ­ings of Jura Soyfer.”

Burds’ pre­sen­ta­tion is titled “The pogrom in Lem­berg, 1 July 1941: A local atrocity as inter­na­tional history.”

The com­mem­o­ra­tion will take place on Monday, Jan. 25, at 8 a.m. in the Raytheon Amphithe­ater. Break­fast will be served and RSVP is required.

Inspired by the inter­na­tion­ally renowned TED Talks, NU Talk 2016 will fea­ture one stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each of Northeastern’s science-​​oriented stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions, who will dis­cuss research and studies related to their groups’ work.
