The program will also have a panel discussion on “The Future of Holocaust Memory in the 21st Century.” Panelists will include: Avinoam Patt, associate director of the Greenberg Center; Steve Shaw, film producer and primary interviewer on In Our Own Words project; and Leslie Swift from the USHMM.

The “And You Shall Tell Your Children” program is co-sponsored by the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies and Voices of Hope. The “In Our Own Words Interview Project” is funded by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation.
