Five years ago this Spring, we began building the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice at Queens University of Charlotte.  To commemorate our fifth anniversary, we are hosting a virtual celebration on Sunday, March 21, 2021, at 5 pm.  We will celebrate our successes and share our plans for the future. The centerpiece will be the world premiere of the film I Danced for the Angel of Death, the Dr. Edith Eva Eger Story.

“As the Dalai Lama was speaking, I could not help thinking of how we try so hard, with our natural parental instinct, to save our children from pain and suffering, but when we do, we rob them of their ability to grow and learn from adversity. I recalled psychologist and Auschwitz survivor Edith Eva Eger saying that the spoiled, pampered children were the first to die at Auschwitz. They kept waiting for others to come save them, and when no one came, they gave up. They had not learned how to save themselves.”― Dalai Lama XIV, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

Quoted by the Dalai Lama XIV in The Book of Joy, acclaimed by Oprah, celebrated by Glennon Doyle, her words and story will inspire all of you. You won’t want to miss this incredible event! If you have any questions, please email Talia Goldman, goldmant@queens.edu.
