Kristallnacht-Holocaust Remembrance Week

November 11
.
Holocaust Remembrance Week
November 11 - November 15, 2013

At a time of horror in the middle of the 20th century, the silence of the world made possible the monstrous crime of genocide, the attempted murder of a whole people for no other reason that they were a particular type of people, a people called by God the “Chosen People”: the Jews.

Join us as we renounce silent indifference and pledge to confront discrimination and prejudice in support of the Human Family.

Monday, November 11 - Friday, November 15
2nd Floor of the Sakowich Campus Center, 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Come experience this interactive diversity and inclusion kiosk! Thanks to advances in genetics, history and anthropology, we now know: not one characteristic, trait or gene distinguishes all the members of one so-called race from all non-members. Our popular notions of race are cultural. This kiosk will allow you to see yourself in a different skin; change your race to Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Indian.
Presented by Merrimack Student Involvement and ALANA
