Conference looks at Holocaust, churches

Monroe Community College is hosting the 42nd-annual Scholars’ Conference on the Holocaust and the Churches May 12-14.

The interfaith conference’s theme, 70 Years Later: The Lingering Shadow of Wannsee, invites participants to investigate the factors of and changes since the Wannsee Conference in 1942 when the Nazis formally determined the "Final Solution." Participants include scholars from four continents, including historians, theologians, philosophers, teachers, artists and poets.

Holocaust scholar and former director of the United States Holocaust Research Institute at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Michael Berenbaum will present the closing keynote, "Is the Shoah the Perfect Storm of Genocide?" on Monday evening, May 14.
