The Alliance for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide: Where Have We Been and Where Are We Heading

She will be joined by Rachel Sibley, the newly appointed coordinator of the Alliance Education Committee, who arranges presentations by Holocaust and genocide survivors and descendants in local schools and in the community. The talk will include brief video clips of local Holocaust survivors: Hans Angress, Al and Susanne Batzdorff and Lillian Judd, z’ll.
