Kleinmann Family Foundation

Tenth Annual Cegep Holocaust Symposium
Vanier College, March 24-28, 2003

The Holocaust Symposium planning committee prepared the following schedule of speakers, films and events for the week of March 24-28. This year's theme explores aspects of resistance – mostly the spiritual and psychological resources that people draw on to help them overcome trauma and persecution.

Please note: Any teacher who wants to bring a class to any of these events should contact Neil Caplan at 7152 to ascertain whether sufficient seating exists or can be arranged.

Thank you.
