A symposium for people in their 20s and 30s. The program is free of charge. Light lunch will be served; Kashruth observed. Street parking available; TTC recommended.

In an era when the number of Holocaust survivors is declining, how important are sites such as Auschwitz-Birkenau in preserving the memory of the Holocaust? How do we deal with the legacy of the Holocaust? As a community, as a generation, as a global society? What do we choose to remember? 

The symposium will begin with interactive sessions:
*Holocaust 101 (a primer)
*Everyday Life in the Warsaw Ghetto
*The Holocaust in Culture & Media
*Faith and the Holocaust

Keynote address on preserving sites of memory from Dr. Robert Jan van Pelt, HEW 2012 Scholar-in-Residence, leading expert on Auschwitz-Birkenau.
