OSU Holocaust Week!

Holocaust survivor, Marion Blumenthal Lazan, speaks Monday night during OSU's annual Holocaust Memorial Week. OSU has been putting on the event every year since 1987 in order to combat prejudice of all kinds, and to foster respect for diversity.   

Oregon State University’s Holocaust Memorial Program will hold its 35th annual Holocaust Memorial Week in honor of survivors this week. 

The events began on April 5 and will continue until April 8 via Zoom. 

All members of the public are invited to attend these Zoom events. Events include talks, plays, presentations, panel discussions and a concert by OSU’s choir. 

Holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan opened the week Monday with a talk on her experiences during the Holocaust. Classically-trained actor Roger Grunwald will present his play The Mitzvah Project on Tuesday at 7 p.m PST. and Jennifer Evansa, professor of History at Carleton University (Ottawa), will present a talk on how platforms such as Facebook discuss the Holocaust on Wednesday at 7 p.m. 

On Thursday, OSU choirs led by Director Steven M. Zielke will sing of the Holocaust and healing, broadcasting via Youtube Premier at noon. A panel discussion will be the final event of the week Thursday evening, starting at 7 p.m. 

The event is free to attend, but registration is required for each individual event. 

More information and links to register for each event can be found on the OSU Holocaust Memorial Program website.
