Please join us for the student conference on Witnessing Auschwitz!

On behalf of the Witnessing Auschwitz program, we cordially invite you to the 2015 Student Conference.

This conference will include student panels centred on the research they conducted whilst in Poland. The Witnessing Auschwitz program was an incredible opportunity in which students from UBC were able to participate in a multi-disciplinary program that allowed them to explore the complicated memory of the Holocaust and the context in which it affects the present.

This year will also include many different speakers.Their topics will be an invaluable opportunity to learn more about the Holocaust. With the generous sponsorship of the Polish Consulate of Vancouver, this year’s conference also has the pleasure of welcoming the exhibition The World Knew- Jan Karski’s Mission for Humanity. It is a 22 panel exhibit which tells of Karski’s lessons for humanity through photographs, documents and testimony.
