What if we forgot about the Holocaust?

On January 27, 1945 the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated by Soviet troops while Allied forces marched through Europe, freeing the continent from the tyranny of Nazi Germany. Seventy-two years later, do we remember the atrocities of the brutal Nazi Party? How could the Holocaust have happened—and could it happen again?

Each year, January 27th is recognized as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Here in St. Cloud, we will recognize this day locally on February 1, 2017, when Mehnaz Afridi, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Director of Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College will present The Shoah* Through Muslim Eyes at 6pm in Ritsche Auditorium at SCSU.

#UNITECLOUD is proud to co-sponsor this event with the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education at St. Cloud State University, Minnesota State, and the Jewish Community Relations Council.
