Casper College Hosts Holocaust Commemoration Ceremony
Casper College will host their 2018 Holocaust “Days of Remembrance” commemoration ceremony on Thursday, April 12th, at noon. In March, the “Through the Eyes of Many: Experiences in the Holocaust” seminar was held at Casper College, featuring a Holocaust survivor and six experts who made presentations on a variety of Holocaust-related topics over three days. During Thursday's event a panel of students and community members will discuss their reactions to the to that seminar.
“'Days of Remembrance’ is our opportunity to remember the victims of Nazism and those who liberated the concentration camps," said Lance Jones, the event organizer, Holocaust instructor, and director of campus security at Casper College. "As the years go by the survivors become fewer and fewer. It is incumbent upon us, the living, to keep alive the memory of those events and times so that, with our commitment, they will never again be repeated.”
“Days of Remembrance” was established by the United States Congress “as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust” according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Days Of Remembrance Commemoration Ceremony:
- Thursday, April 12th, at noon
- Chapman Lobby on the second floor of the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center on the Casper College Campus.
