Thank you to the 4,510 students and educators from across Alberta who joined us in our spring session of our virtual Holocaust Education Symposium. From May 2 to 6 registered schools were given access to an introduction to the Holocaust by Historian David Bercuson and the documentary, The Path to Nazi Genocide. On May 6, 21 classrooms came together on Zoom to watch testimony by Holocaust survivor, Sidney Cyngiser, followed by a live Q & A with his daughter, Francie Cyngiser. Thank you to all those who made this program possible, including Holocaust and Human Rights: Remembrance and Education Co-Chairs, Marnie Bondar and Dahlia Libin, Francie Cyngiser, Mount Royal University, and all of our partners.
