IUPUI International Holocaust Remembrance Program

This virtual event will feature a discussion of Holocaust narratives with Jamie Levine-Daniel, Assistant Professor at O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and Jeremy Price, Assistant Professor at the IUPUI School of Education. They will discuss the contemporary role of Holocaust narratives, what we do with them today, why they matter, and the work our communities need to do as the Holocaust survivor population ages. The program will also include remarks by Dr. Karen Dace, IUPUI Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and musical performances by Adam Shapiro, who played the Rabbi in Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish and is an Indiana native. It culminates in a memorial candle lighting by community leaders and IUPUI students, faculty, and staff. Zoom address available on registration.
