As the Holocaust (Shoah) is observed throughout the world this week and the UW community welcomes jurist, memoirist and concentration camp survivor Thomas Buergenthal, it is a fitting time to consider the contemporary commemoration of state-sponsored murder by the Nazi regime. Lawyer/Activist Reut Cohen writes: “We Israelis grow up in the shadows of the Holocaust. It's always there and always very present. I don't think this is necessarily bad, but I recognize two possible educational messages that derive from this: the first is that ‘We must never let this happen to us [Jews/Israel] again and have to do everything in order to prevent it’ and the second is ‘We must never let this happen again to any other nation or people.’" Join us for a discussion about the public remembrance of genocidal events.
