From Learning Comes Life: A New Generation of Holocaust Scholarship

8:30AM - 11:30AM  

Event Centre, 8th Floor, Centennial College 937 Progress Avenue
Toronto, ON

Now, more than ever, it is important to connect to the past to provide answers for the future. Max Eisen, a concentration camp survivor whose masterful book, By Chance Alone: A Remarkable True Story of Courage and Survival at Auschwitz, won Canada Reads 2019, will present testimony to the harrowing events of the past. Students will respond to his urgent story with thoughtful scholarship in a student poster display and competition, designed to showcase GNED student research related to the human face and causes of genocide. These projects will continue a difficult but necessary conversation as we move forward.

Light breakfast served from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
