Voices of the Holocaust: the need to listen and remember

 

Every November Centennial College commemorates Holocaust Education Week to honour the experiences of Holocaust survivors through their testimonies. With time, these treasured voices and narratives are disappearing. From today forward it is with greater consciousness we must keep the lessons from the Holocaust alive.  We must continue to strive and build our community based on the foundations of responsibility and respect.

 

Join us on Monday November 9, 2020, for our live, virtual event with keynote speaker, Andy Reti, Holocaust survivor.  As a child survivor of the Shoah, Mr. Reti will share his memories of his family’s capture and separation by recounting the experience of being forced into a Jewish ghetto. Register in advance for this webinar to hear this incredible and courageous story of survival and resilience.
