Bearing Witness: Conversations with Holocaust Survivors
Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – KCC joined in commemorative events and programming for Yom HaShoah and welcomed Holocaust survivors to campus to share their stories of survival. This two part event gave students the opportunity to hear from survivors in intimate small groups for one hour in a round-table format. Holocaust survivors shared their stories, our students listened intently and asked questions. Following the round-tables, Mrs. Sonia Klein, a Holocaust survivor, gave an inspiring address, calling all of us to speak up and act against any opportunities for injustice.
We are very grateful to our friends at Selfhelp Community Services Inc. for their assistance organizing this event. Special thanks to Kingsborough’s chapter of the Student World Assembly for co-sponsoring this event.
