Holocaust lecture at Southeastern | Arts & Culture
The Southeastern Louisiana University Department of History and Political Sciences will host the annual Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) lecture on Tuesday, May 3, at 1 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre.
Lori Guidry Dumas, a recent master’s graduate of Southeastern’s history program, will present an illustrated lecture entitled, “Commemoration and Preservation: Legacies from a Student Perspective.”
Dumas will discuss her travels across Poland, the Czech Republic, and Germany with the Holocaust Education Foundation and examine the ways those areas commemorate and preserve the truths of the Holocaust.
“Walking the grounds once plagued by these horrors, visitors gain a unique understanding not only of the events as they happened, but also how the world remembers them,” Dumas said.
The event is free and open to the public.
