Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Week [Recommended Event]

3 Apr

Check out these events as part of GW Hillel, Kappa Alpha Psi, and SAFI’s Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Week. The events will serve as a memorial to victims of the Holocaust, allow students of all backgrounds to take an active role in remembering the many victims of the Holocaust, and heighten awareness of genocide across the world.

The three events of the week will be:
