Volunteers will read names and short biographies of Holocaust victims from 10 a.m. today through 10 a.m. tomorrow on the UA Mall.

Students, staff and faculty will begin a 24-hour vigil this morning in remembrance of the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust and the genocide in Darfur.

The event, which has been held annually the past 14 years, will begin at 10 a.m. today on the UA Mall near Old Main.

Organizers have made a few changes to traditional features this year.
