The Rabbi Isidoro Aizenberg Memorial Lecture
In commemoration of Yom HaShoah,
Holocaust Remembrance Day, join The Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center for a discussion about the complexities of
educating people about the Holocaust in a town that is synonymous with the
Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination and concentration camp in what was formerly
Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II.
Featuring Tomasz Kuncewicz, Director, and Maciek Zabierowski, Head of Learning & Special Projects, from the Auschwitz Jewish Center in Oświęcim, Poland. The Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation was established in 1995 in order to rebuild a Jewish cultural, spiritual, and educational center in Oświęcim. In September 2000, the Auschwitz Jewish Center opened its doors to visitors from all over the world. It is a non-governmental organization which exists to serve as a guardian of Jewish memory, as well as to educate the public about the Holocaust. Since August, 2006, the Center has been affiliated with the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in New York, USA.
This event is co-sponsored by the Harriet & Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center at Queensborough Community College and the Center for Jewish Studies at Queens College.
