Date: February 11, 2014
Guest Speaker: Herbert Kohn
Adobe Link: A Day of Remembrance
Every January, the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme, remind the world of the lessons learned from this horrific event, and work to prevent future violations of human rights worldwide. This year’s theme, Journey’s Through the Holocaust, honors the Holocaust survivors with a special exhibit entitled “When You Listen to a Witness, You Become a Witness” opening January 28, 2014 at the United Nations in New York City.
In keeping with this year's theme, the GaVS Cultural Café sponsored by the Social Studies Department, invites you to listen and to witness the personal journey of Mr. Herbert Kohn, an Atlanta resident and Holocaust survivor. Mr. Kohn will relate his story as a youth in Nazi Germany. His message reminds all listeners of the significance of the Holocaust, as well as, the importance of preventing such atrocities in the future.
Don't forget to ask your Social Studies teacher about earning credit for participating in this event.
Don't miss this memorable event!
All students, faculty, and staff are welcome.
