11th Annual Holocaust Symposium at Vanier College

THE HOLOCAUST: LOSS OF YOUTH

Kleinmann Family Foundation

Eleventh Annual Cégep
Holocaust Symposium

March 29 – April 2, 2004

Vanier College is proud to offer the following schedule of speakers, films and events for the week of March 29- April 2, 2004.

This year’s theme explores aspects of youth – how the Holocaust robbed people of their youth, how young people then responded to persecution, threats and adversity, and how young people today see their future in the light of their education in the lessons of the past.

Please note: Any teacher who wishes to bring their class to any of these events should contact Neil Caplan by email or by telephone at ext. 7152 to ascertain whether sufficient seating exists or can be arranged.
