It has been a year of transition and creation for the Holocaust and Genocide Studies Project. We have new leadership and some new Advisory Board members and we have some very exciting new events to look forward to next year.
This year, we were very fortunate to have Stanford University’s Professor David Cohen visit us and discuss his work on International Criminal Courts. He had an amazing power point that really illustrated the world of the criminal courts in the areas of Africa and Asia that he works in. There is a link to the video of that evening in a post below.
In February and March, we also held a wonderfully attended film series led by Professor Patricia Schecter, Chair of HGS, centering on the Question of Genocide in Native North American History. Our audience each night was diverse and asked thoughtful questions that raised further dialogue for the entire room.
We especially want to thank Professor Andrew Cohen for sharing the film series information with so many students at Portland Community College.
