Symposium at UCI Today: Teaching the Holocaust

Like me, I am sure you are pretty busy today.

I would be kicking myself if I did not let you know about a symposium taking place at UC Irvine today.  It is called, Teaching the Holocaust.

This free one day seminar begins at 10:30 a.m. this morning and lasts until 6:30 p.m.  It is co-sponsored by the Rose Project of the Jewish Federation Orange County and the U.S. Holocaust Museum, Washington D.C.
