As we travel across the country, LA2DC is honoring the accomplishments of individuals and organizations doing the difficult work of genocide and mass atrocity detection and prevention, and providing survivor relief. LA2DC is proud to recognize Kansas Wesleyan University for its Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Week.
Kansas Wesleyan University hosted its annual Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Week, April 20-24, 2015.
Dr. Russell, professor of History and chair of both the Department of History and the Division of Humanities, planned special events and exhibits for April 20-24, on the occasion of KWU’s ninth annual Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Week.
With the dwindling number of aging survivors of the Holocaust who are willing to share their story, and in particular male survivors, this will be a very special opportunity for the greater Salina community and all of central Kansas. Polish-born Mr. Henry Greenbaum, now of Bethesda, MD, will share his experiences.
LA2DC is organized and supported by Americans of all backgrounds and faiths and Armenian-Americans who believe that it’s time to eliminate genocide as a war tactic. On the centennial of the first large-scale genocide of the 20th century, LA2DC demands recognition and prevention of such atrocities and calls on world leaders to stop future genocides.
