During Holocaust Education Week (Jan. 22 to 26), Guelph Hillel invites the U of G community to learn more about the Holocaust, combat antisemitism and hate, and make time for reflection so that a similar tragedy never happens again. 

The week-long educational campaign aims consists of events that enable students to hear from the perspective of a Holocaust survivor, learn about stories of children in the Holocaust, virtually tour Auschwitz, enjoy a Shabbat dinner and engage with Guelph Hillel.
