An Evening of Holocaust Education and Remembrance
description: In commemoration of the Tree of Life Synagogue, Shaler Area High School students are hosting an evening of Holocaust remembrance and education. In the library and LIGHT Center (Center for Leadership through Innovation in Genocide and Human rights Teaching), survivor Shulamit Bastacky, students, and leaders from the SNHL and Millvale libraries will decorate butterflies in remembrance of child victims of the Holocaust and read stories of empathy and tolerance. In the lobby, Classrooms Without Borders and the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh will display exhibits on the Wannsee Conference and CHUTZ-POW!, and students will collect donations for the Tree of Life Synagogue while educating the public about classroom projects focused on the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights. In the auditorium, students and community members will hear from survivor and author Yolanda Avram-Willis, generations speaker Lynne Ravas, Shaler Area alumnus and former refugee Iris Matijevic, and Klezmer violin specialist Christopher Sforza, along with student performances of art and music. The event is designed for community members of all ages to learn about and commemorate victims of the Holocaust and antisemitism.
