Genocide and Mass Atrocities Studies Program visit US Holocaust Memorial Museum
The Genocide and Mass Atrocities Studies Program recently conducted an elective in conjunction with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). The students participated in a 5-day course that covered topics related to Genocide and Mass Atrocities around the world, with guest instructors from the Department of State and other agencies of understanding. The week was capped off by a time of remembering with a visit with Mr Henry Greenbaum, an Auschwitz Survivor from Poland. Mr Greenbaum, 86, was in forced labor camps beginning at the age of 12, and was liberated after five years while on a death march from Auschwitz to another camp in 1945.
