Cornell College Hillel
International Holocaust Remembrance
Monday January 23rd
In order to educate about the atrocities of the Holocaust as well as other modern genocides around the world, we will be hanging posters on the OC detailing a few examples of the horrors that continue unabated in our lifetime.
Check them out all this week and encourage your friends to view them as well.
Wednesday and Thursday:
Volunteers still needed to hand out yellow memorial armbands
at lunch Wednesday and Thursday.
Contact Stacy Weinberg if you would be willing to spare an hour.
Friday, January 27th at 11:15am:
Moment of silence on the OC as a group to join with the millions around the globe who pause to remember the lost.
We will have a holocaust/genocide memorial service at 5:00 pm in Allee chapel and
dinner at 6:00 pm in Stoner House.
