What do we do, could we do, should we do today to shape tomorrow? What trends are at work today that will produce tomorrow – should we accelerate them? Transform them? We’re already making the future – but what sort of future do we want?

Combatting Hate: Once Voice at a Time with Stephen Smith
The Greenspon Center selected International Holocaust Remembrance Day as the annual date on which to share the powerful message of the Holocaust community. The UN selected January 27th, the day on which Auschwitz was liberated, as International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD).  Their vision included global commemoration ceremonies with the aim of education to prevent of future genocides.

The Greenspon Center will be joining the international community in carrying this critical mandate forward with its inaugural community event titled Combatting Hate: Once Voice at a Time on January 26, 2023 at 7:00 pm in the Sarah Belk Gambrell Center for Civic Engagement at Queens University of Charlotte. The evening will commemorate Holocaust victims as well as highlight the innovative trajectory of Holocaust education today.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Stephen Smith, PhD, Executive Director Emeritus of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, founded by Steven Spielberg in the wake of the filming of Schindler’s List. The program will include an Upstander Award which will be bestowed upon an individual who took great risks and exhibited great courage in responding to hate.

An Historical Inquiry of Nazism & Jim Crow: Testimony in Dialogue with Primary Sources
Join the Greenspon Center and the SC Council on the Holocaust as we welcome Aya Marczyk, from the Fortunoff Archives at Yale University, who will lead us in this cutting edge historical inquiry workshop.

This workshop will introduce the Fortunoff Video Archive’s testimony-centered curriculum “Race and Citizenship in Nazi Germany and Jim Crow United States.” The curriculum is a set of 15 online lessons that engage students in the following questions: How do we listen to testimonies given by Holocaust survivors and witnesses? What skills and attitudes do we need to engage in both empathetic listening and historical inquiry? And what does it take to articulate rigorous comparisons of race laws in the United States and Nazi Germany in the 1930s?

The day includes breakfast, lunch, and a free copy of the book Hitler's American Model.

$25.00 registration fee
