Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus to Host
Holocaust Commemoration in March and April

Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus will host a month-long series of free events for its Holocaust Commemoration, beginning in late March. The commemoration will include an art/photography exhibit with a keynote address from Holocaust survivor Nesse Godin; a slide/lecture presentation on Anne Frank; and a panel discussion on hate crimes.

The Human Rights Committee of Montgomery College’s Paul Peck Humanities Institute is sponsoring these events. The committee sponsors lectures, seminars and events that attempt to expose the effects of hatred and violence and raise questions within the College and throughout the greater community to create constructive methods of understanding and reconciling differences.

Montgomery College’s Rockville Campus is located at 51 Mannakee Street, just off Route 355, one mile north of the Rockville Metro Station. For more information about the Holocaust Commemoration, call 240-567-7417.
