Human2Human Diversity Series Presents: Taken From My Home: Indian Boarding Schools and the Holocaust in Perspective
Nov 2, 2012
How do humans reach a level of intolerance or hatred strong enough to annihilate others’ culture or population? When do we recognize the moment to act to protect those who are targeted for destruction? Explore these and other questions with Robin Levin, director of Library Services at Fort Washakie School on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming and teacher/fellow with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Ms. Levin relies on the diaries and testimonies from the Indian Boarding School experience in the USA and from the Lodz Ghetto in Nazi-era Poland. Though distinct, these studies bring into focus many common questions. By delving into the personal accounts of teenagers who suffered, we will learn how resilient and resourceful humans must be. Join us on Friday, November 2nd from 12pm-1:30pm in Beaty Hall Theater (Rm 102). Lunch provided.
