Lunch and Learn: "The United States and the Holocaust"

Thursday, April 26, 2018

In observance of Holocaust Remembrance Month, the April Lunch and Learn program will feature Mike Russell speaking about "The United States and the Holocaust." Mike Russell, Professor of History and Chair of the Department of History at Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina, Kansas, initiated Holocaust Remembrance Week on that campus in 2007. Since that time, Kansas Wesleyan University has developed a working relationship with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., which has provided survivor speakers and documents and photos for campus exhibits.
