This year is the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of concentration camps across Europe. For those who lived through it, 65 years doesn’t seem that long ago. For those born after the war, 65 years is a lifetime. Shortly after the war ended, Holocaust Remembrance Day was established to remind people of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust.
This year Holocaust Remembrance Day was Sunday, April 11. In honor of the day, the Library welcomes Lili Gordon, a child survivor of the Holocaust. Ms. Gordon will be speaking about her experiences during the war on Thursday, April 29 at 1:00 pm in the first floor Meeting Room (L129). Please join us for this special event.
*Due to a scheduling conflict, Ruth Steinfeld, the previously announced speaker, will be unable to join us. Instead, Lili Gordon will be speaking on her experiences during World War II.
This event is open to all, but please take into consideration the subject material when bringing children.
