UNC to Host Holocaust Observance Events April 21-27

Greeley's Holocaust Memorial Observance April 21-27 includes several events on the UNC campus, including a Holocaust Literature Read-In, the International Film Series showing of The Passenger and the observance's featured speaker, Holocaust survivor Estelle Laughlin.

The schedule of events on campus includes:

Holocaust Literature Read-In

Take turns reading portions of Holocaust related books or poems from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday, April 21 in Michener Library (west alcove, first floor). Bring your own books or choose from ones displayed at the library.

Reading of the Litany of the Martyrs

Victims of the Holocaust will be honored and remembered in this traditional reading of their names from 11 a.m.-2p.m. Tuesday, April 22 at the University Center's Fireside Lounge.

Featured Guest Speaker

Holocaust survivor Estelle Laughlin will share her story at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 23 in the Pikes Peak Ballroom of the University Center. Only ten years old when Hitler invaded Poland, Estelle and her family soon found themselves in the Warsaw Ghetto. Her harrowing experience is a testament to her indominable spirit and fierce determination to remain loving and compassionate even in the face of unimaginable evil.

Film: The Passenger

UNC's International Film Series will host a showing of The Passenger at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 24 in Lindou Auditorium, Michener Library. The film portrays a German woman on a ship coming back from Europe who notices the face of another woman, which brings back recollections of the past. As she tells her husband that the woman was an overseer in Auschwitz during the war, her vision of the past is shown and then the actual events.

All events are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the UNC lots after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.
