Architects of Auschwitz | Thursday, January 19 | 8:00 PM ET
Perhaps no other concentration camp informs our understanding and memory of the Holocaust more than Auschwitz. Yet how was it built, and who were the architects who made it physically possible? Dr. Robert Jan van Pelt, a professor at the University of Waterloo's School of Architecture, was an expert witness in Deborah Lipstadt’s defense in the civil libel suit brought against her by British author and Holocaust denier David Irving in 1996. 



Remembering: Talking About the Holocaust in the 21st Century
Thursday, January 26 | 5:30 PM ET

This panel of leading thinkers will discuss how media, educators, religious institutions, and governments can fight Holocaust denial and deepen understanding of the genocide. What is the role of allies, people who are not the targets of extremism?



The Last Generation | Podcast
Unscripted conversations we should all be having with our grandparents. The Last Generation podcast is created by Maddy Kramer, the granddaughter of a Holocaust survivor. She always regretted that she never got to hear her grandmother's story firsthand. Now, Maddy is making sure that others get that opportunity.
