Holocaust Rememberance Day


Monday January 28, 2013 Noon - 2:00pm
SCSU Atwood Theater

On January 27th, 1945, Soviet soldiers liberated the Auschwitz death camp near Cracow, Poland.  The United Nations has used this date to establish January 27th as the annual
"International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust."

Nickys Family

The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education recognizes this day to commemorate the victims and to honor the survivors, rescuers, and liberators of the Holocaust.  This year CHGE will screen newly released NICKY’S FAMILY, the story of Sir Nicholas Winton who personally and by his own initiative saved the lives of 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and brought them across Hitler’s Germany to Britain. For nearly 50 years, the “British Schindler” kept secret how he rescued these children; not even his wife knew anything about it.

Film Details
The film will be shown free of charge and open to the public.  Discussion to follow.

Rip Patten

See the film first ! "Freedom Riders" PBS documentary is being shown in the Miller Center Auditorium on Thursday Oct. 4th.

Rip's story is about his experiences among more than four hundred Americans who participated in a bold and dangerous experiment designed to awaken the conscience of a complacent nation. The 'Freedom Riders challenged the mores of a racially segregated society by performing a disarmingly simple act.
