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.

Kid Pickford: Moomins and the Winter Wonderland @ Pickford Film Center

Pickford Film Center is excited for the fun to continue with Kid Pickford, a monthly family-friendly film series for kids at the Pickford for $1. Formally named Pickford Family Matinees, this series shows a classic family film each month on Saturdays at 1 pm. From an epic children’s quest spanning 50 years, rousing debates for the history books, some mysterious mythical cursed rabbits, gifted aspiring ballet stars, a quest to secure a stolen book, and a special winter in Moomin Valley, this year’s Kid Pickford slate is full of excitement and a joy to watch!

No matter if you’re 30 and want to see a classic favorite childhood film, have kids, want to host a birthday party, or simply want a relaxed and enjoyable Saturday afternoon, Kid Pickford is always a lot of fun. Bring your kids, bring friends or a date, and catch a classic Saturday afternoon movie.

Closing our Kid Pickford 2019 slate is Moomins and the Winter Wonderland (2017). The winter seems extraordinary in Moomin Valley, so Moomintroll decides to stay awake instead of having his typical winter slumber. Moomintroll discovers that strange creatures wander amidst the snowdrifts in the midwinter darkness, and all of the new hints imply that an eccentric guest is soon to arrive. This new guest is called Christmas, and an astounded Moomintroll learns to experience the true meaning of this wonderful holiday.
