Monday, April 8, 2019


Lorrie Greenhouse Gardella, associate professor, Department of Social Work, presents: “Memory, Community, Hope:  Holocaust Survivors in Germany, 1945”

Holocaust survivors in displaced persons camps preserved culture and restored humane values as they prepared for new lives. This presentation explores implications for human services with refugees today.

The 64 Days of Nonviolence officially begins each year on January 30, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated, and ends on April 4, the day we commemorate Dr. King. In our sixteenth annual observation of the 64 Days at Southern Connecticut State University, we continue to celebrate the peace and justice heritage in many of our cultures and heritages, including our observation of Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Asian/Pacific Heritage Month.
