UVic International Holocaust Remembrance Day

January
27, 2:00 – 3:00 pm, Farquhar Auditorium lobby, University Centre

Please
join the students of the University of Victoria in commemorating International Holocaust
Remembrance Day
with a special ceremony on campus. Various student,
community, and university organizations will be coming together to remember the
Holocaust whose legacy continues to impact many of us.

The ceremony
will be held on January 27th, from 2:00-3:00pm in the Farquhar
Auditorium lobby in the University Centre, 3800 Finnerty Rd. This event is free
of charge, and there will be general seating, though please give priority to
the elderly and those in need.

In
order to make this event as accessible as possible, there will be two licensed
American Sign Language interpreters.

This
event will be held on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Xwepsum and
Lekwungen peoples. We come from a place of respect and gratitude to know that
this memorial will be taking place on their lands.

Thank
you to the History Department, UVSS and Multi-Faith services for sponsoring
this event.

For more information,
please email Paige Gelfer.
