Confronting Evil: Why Holocaust and Genocide Studies Matter Today @ Western Washington University - WL Reading Room, 4th Floor

WWU Honors the Life & Legacy of Noemi Ban at Western with a talk by James Waller, Cohen Professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College, New Hampshire

In a world in which “Never Again” is better understood as “Again and Again,” this lecture addresses how genocide prevention is possible and why it matters in today’s world. Closer to home, we will explore why genocide prevention matters to us as we think about our country’s past, present, and future.

Finally, the lecture will conclude with an understanding of why Holocaust and genocide studies matter so much in today’s world for the promotion and protection of civil and human rights.
