Holocaust Education Week is an annual event presented by the Sarah and Chaim Neuberger Holocaust Education Centre. This, the 36th Holocaust Education Week presented by the centre, focuses on the theme The Future of Memory. The week’s programming begins on November 2nd and culminates in a commemoration of the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass (November 9-10, 1938). This year’s theme asks how the Holocaust will be remembered in the future. Professor Levi connects to this theme by considering the role of our collective memory of the Holocaust in international courts and community safety worldwide. His thoughts, and more about the week’s programing are available at the Holocaust Centre.
