From ‘never again’ to again and again
Northeastern will host a series of events next week in remembrance of the Holocaust and the Rwandan genocide of 1994, and to bring awareness in order to help prevent future genocides.
Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week, which runs April 1-5, continues the university’s annual tradition of remembering the Holocaust, and reflecting on its significance and the lessons that can be learned, according to Dov Waxman, the Stotsky Professor of Jewish Historical and Cultural Studies at Northeastern.
“It’s a commitment by the university to recognize and commemorate the Holocaust, but also learn from the tragedy of the Holocaust so it’s never repeated again,” said Waxman, a professor of political science, international affairs, and Israel studies and who chairs the committee that organizes the university’s annual Holocaust remembrance.
