A PROGRAM COMMEMORATING HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY BY
PROVIDING SUPPORT AND INSIGHTS ON TEACHING THE HOLOCAUST
Sponsored by Purdue University Calumet's School of Education and its Diversity Committee,
School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and the Jewish Federation of Northwest Indiana
May 2, 2008 - Holocaust Remembrance Day:   Purdue University Calumet was the venue for "Remembering and Teaching the Holocaust,"
a program designed, organized, and hosted by
Dr. Saul Lerner, Professor of History.

Dr. Gordon Mork, Professor of History, offered an engaging keynote, "Teaching the Holocaust,"  modeling awareness-raising, interactive
lessons and providing effective teaching strategies and resources.

Suggesting that "the holocaust would have been impossible without a 'them and us' mindset," Associate Professor of Special Education,

Dr. Tom Mihail
, presented his video, "'Unworthy of Life:'  The Holocaust and People with Disabilities," which traces the eugenics
movement and documents genocide as its natural extension.

Dr. Lynn Zimmerman, Associate Professor of Education, shared personal experiences focusing on the paradox of anti-semitism and
holocaust education in Poland.

Associate Professor of English,
Dr. Lizbeth Bryant, discussed and recommended holocaust literature, especially highlighting Viktor Frankl's
"Man's Search for Meaning."

The program concluded with a panel discussion by the presenters, moderated by Dr. Lerner.  Interacting with 50 participants, which
included area educators, the panel promoted the mission of remembering and teaching the holocaust.

This site serves as a portal to resources in support of that mission.

Elie Wiesel
"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and
humiliation.  We must always take sides.  Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."

"Sometimes we must interfere.  When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is
in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant.  Whenever men or
women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must -
at that moment - become the center of the universe."
