Black River Technical College, in cooperation with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will host its 17th annual Holocaust Survivor Series lectures.

Survivors provide first-hand accounts of the struggles theyexperienced during the Holocaust.  Past survivors have been held prisoner in concentration camps while others have been imprisoned in the Ghetto in Warsaw, Poland.  Still others have related their stories of being refugees to countries including France, Switzerland, and the United States.

Due to the COVID- 19 pandemic, the Holocaust survivor presentations will be held virtually again this year. Tuesday, October 26th at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, October 28th at 6:00 p.m.
