OSU to mark Holocaust

Survivors, scholars will talk on campus

By OSU News Service

Oregon State University is sponsoring a Holocaust Memorial Week program beginning Monday that will bring Holocaust survivors and scholars to Corvallis.

It is the 20th consecutive year the university has hosted a Holocaust memorial program in a cooperative effort with the city of Corvallis and the Corvallis School District.

“While the Shoah is the main focus of the program, we also host an event each year that highlights the broader issue of genocide and mass murder,â€? said Paul Kopperman, an OSU history professor and coordinator of Holocaust Memorial Week. “It is a reminder that there is still an extensive and ongoing problem with governments and nations targeting minorities for elimination.â€?
