Holocaust Documentation & Education Center presents Student Awareness Day

Barry University is hosting the Holocaust Documentation & Education Center as they present Miami-Dade County Student Awareness Day on March 5. This Day is dedicated to educate high school students about the dangers of bullying, racism, hatred, and bigotry through videos, lectures, and round table discussions with Survivors of the Holocaust. By relating to the tragic and personal stories of these Survivors, students begin to understand that no one is immune to the evil and discrimination bestowed upon them by others. Approximately 600 high school students from the local community will be in attendance.

Barry University is so proud that we can offer our venue to host such an important event that educates our future about how we, as individuals, must take a stand against the hatred that happens in our world.  This event ties into our Core Commitments as a University to promote knowledge and trust, an inclusive community, social justice, and collaborative service. 

If you are interested in attending the event, please feel free to stop in.  There are a limited number of spaces available for lunch, so please RSVP to librarian@hdec.org by noon on Monday, March 4, 2013.
