Date Wed, Dec 15, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Duration   2h

The anniversaries of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide occur in December. This program will talk about the women who were identified by the Third Reich as ‘undesirables,’ including Jews, Roma, political dissidents, those who were cognitively or physically disabled, and others, were targeted for euthanasia; cruel and inhuman medical experimentation; sterilization; rape and sexual slavery; forced abortion; infanticide of any children born in the concentration camps; and other grievous practices. Children were routinely tortured, used as experimental subjects, abused, and murdered. We will examine these practices and also highlights German men and women who, at risk of their own lives and the lives of their loved ones, intervened to attempt to save others.

The featured speakers are Ellen J. Kennedy, Ph.D., founder and Executive Director of World Without Genocide; and Beverley Chalmers, Ph.D., D.Sc., an award-winning author and scholar. Her book, Birth, Sex and Abuse: Women’s Voices Under Nazi Rule, received the Canadian Jewish Literary Award for Holocaust Literature and a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Award.
