Monday, Jan. 23 | Holocaust Choices
Hayley Brooks - Genocides Study Advocate
6:30 p.m. in Room 112

Probably the largest group of perpetrators in the Holocaust were the bystanders. What were conditions like for them? Did they have a choice? Taking inspiration from temporary exhibit "Some were Neighbors" from USHMM and from personal story of Irene Gut Opdyke, this speaker series will focus on the choices people made during the Holocaust and highlight lessons learned from their stories. We all have choices in life and we can make a difference even as individuals to make the world a better place.
