UHPers in Holocaust Memory Course [GWHatchet]

16 Apr

Take a look at this article over at the GW Hatchet about Honors students in Prof. Walter Reich’s “Holocaust Memory” course, and the body of work they have produced which is on display now.

From the article:

Undergraduates in the honors international affairs class Holocaust and Memory pieced together letters, timelines, telegrams and dreary, black-and-white photographs to dive inside the life of a Holocaust survivor. The exhibit opened last week.

“It is personalizing an event which is almost incomprehensible – which is really incomprehensible – the Holocaust,” Reich, a former director of the Holocaust Museum, said. “One of the things that can be learned is think of all the people who didn’t survive and what they could have contributed to the world.”
