On Tuesday, March 31, Holocaust survivor and author Harold Minuskin will speak about his experiences and book My Children, My Heroes – Memoirs of a Holocaust Mother.

The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. in room 120 of the Liberal Arts building.

On Thursday, April 9, Anne O’Byrne will present “Genocide: A Crime Against Natality,” which explores anti-miscegenation laws, African enslavement in America, solitary confinement and other topics through the lens of natality, which holds that individuals are thrust into the world without the opportunity of choice.
