The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies will have a few events for the Commemoration of the Shoah .
Our guest will be Edith Maniker, a child survivor from Leipzig Germany. She was given into the hands of strangers by her parents when she boarded a train which would carry her to the English Channel where she would cross to England. A child refuge, Edith will share her story at a Commemoration Service on Sunday April 15 at 3:30 pm, Samuel Lutheran Church.
She will speak with 65-70 high school students representing several high schools in Muskegon County. This Outreach program will give students an opportunity for more intimate conversation with our guest as Mr. David Klemm from MAISD and Mrs. Sarah Woycehoski lead the groups through a day long workshop.
On Monday evening April 16th she will speak at a community forum held at the Sturrus Center on Clay street downtown campus of Muskegon Community College. This would be a good venue for parents who wish to come with their middle school age or high school age children, or a high school group.
On Tuesday April 17th @12:30pm Edith will travel north to Ludington to speak at West Shore Community College
