Holocaust Conference

The 38th Conference on the Holocaust and Genocide took place in April focused on the theme of “Never Again? Genocide in the 21st Century.” Dr. Norman Naimark, an internationally known scholar on genocide, an East European Studies professor at Stanford University and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, presented the keynote speech. Much of the conference discussed the war in Ukraine.
