Johnson County Historical Society 75th Auschwitz Anniversary Event


Date/Time
Date(s) - 01/27/2020
6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Location
Bomber Mountain Civic Center


“This presentation will focus on the Auschwitz extermination camp through a series of rare photographs – the only ones which somehow were allowed to be taken.  In addition, Auschwitz will be placed within a context of the larger Holocaust and the forces which led to it.

Remembrance is the most powerful counter to the hatred that spawned the Holocaust.  Six million is more than a number–it is six million individual lives, families, communities.  Thus, there will also be a retelling of the life stories of some of those who perished.

John Egan [Presenter] is a semi-retired historian who has taught Holocaust history and the history of 20th century genocides at Sheridan College and the University of Kansas.”
