Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions by Nazi Germany and its collaborators and in commemoration of the Jewish Resistance. In Israel, Yom HaShoah is a national memorial day.


This Deliberative Conversation will focus on the continued importance of remembering the six million Jews who died in the Holocaust, particularly given the rise of contemporary antisemitism.


Prior to attending, participants are asked to view the free thirty-eight-minute United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) documentary, The Path to Nazi Genocide


WHAT ARE DELIBERATIVE CONVERSATIONS?

Deliberative Conversations at SUNY Empire grew out of a partnership between the college’s Division of Student Affairs-Student Life and the Buffalo Project. These conversations are an effort to increase cultural awareness, interaction and discussion among students, faculty, and staff around difficult topics. The uniqueness of the Deliberative Conversations format is that it is meant to intentionally bring together individuals who represent diverse perspectives around a topic; sometimes difficult or controversial, to advocate for tangible, joint solutions that give a voice to all invested in the conversation.
