LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 18, 2007) – University of Kentucky students, faculty and staff will share last year’s study of the Holocaust at a campuswide event at noon Wednesday, Jan. 24, in the Student Center Small Ballroom. The event is hosted by the UK Division of Student Affairs.

Thirty-one UK students, led by Beth Goldstein, chair of the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation in the College of Education, attended the March of Remembrance and Hope 2006. The program included studies of the Holocaust and travel to relevant historical sites in Poland. Their lives, along with those of 400 university and college students and professors from around the world who also participated, were forever changed.

According to the March of Remembrance and Hope Web site, “The March of Remembrance and Hope is a dynamic (international) educational leadership program. Its purpose is to teach students of different religious and ethnic backgrounds about the dangers of intolerance through the study of the Holocaust, and to promote better relations among people of diverse cultures.”
