The Centennial College Libraries in collaboration with the School of Advancement and the Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Inclusion, as part of the Neuberger Holocaust Education Week 2015, will be hosting an event for the Centennial community to learn about Holocaust survivors.

Surviving Survival: Holocaust survivors and their integration into Canadian communities

Dr. Paula Draper, historian and specialist in memory history, will illustrate what it was like for men, women, and children who survived the Holocaust to rebuild their lives in Canada after the Second World War.

Voices of Liberation – Like Angels Out of Nowhere will be screened. Directed by Canadian filmmaker Matthew Shoychet, the video features the liberation stories of ten Canadian Holocaust survivors who were liberated by American, Canadian, and Russian troops toward the end of World War II.

Participating students will receive credit towards the Leadership Education category of the Leadership Passport.
