CSU Professor presents Holocaust lecture on Yom HaShoah
Today the Jewish Heritage Club at GA sponsored a speaker, Dr. Mark Cole, a professor at CSU to zoom with GA students and faculty to learn about the Holocaust. Over 40 students and faculty joined in as Dr. Cole provided a brief overview including the definition of the Holocaust, some of the root causes, statistics of the concentration camps and why it's important for us today to learn about and remember this mass genocide. This was a follow-up to the club's short presentation at convocation on Thursday January 27 (Yom HaShoah - International Holocaust Remembrance Day).
The Jewish Heritage Club will be visiting the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage next week. We continue to educate the mind and heart of our students about the many different cultures that build and shape the tapestry of our Gilmour community.
