Save the Date!

Sunday, March 8, 2015, 12:00 - 5:00 pm
Galileo High School, San Francisco

2015 is the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and the Holocaust, as well as the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

All Northern California students (grades 8 - 12) and teachers are invited to this annual, free event. Come learn from preeminent educators and Holocaust survivors.

Gain a deeper understanding about the Holocaust and patterns of genocide in order to inspire your own moral courage and social responsibility for the future. Eighteen workshops include survivors' eyewitness testimonies of the Holocaust or genocide. In 2014, more than 750 students and teachers from 101 schools participated in the Day of Learning.

Mark your calendar now for March 8.
Registration will open in mid-February.
