This presentation will review Auschwitz’s history, creation, and the camp’s significance in history and its influence on today’s society.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is Thursday, January 27, 2022. This presentation will focus on Auschwitz. All over the world, Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Shoah. It was established by Germans in 1940 in the suburbs of Oswiecim, a Polish city that was annexed to the Third Reich by the Nazis. Its name was changed to Auschwitz. Auschwitz was the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps and extermination centers. Over 1.1 million men, women, and children lost their lives here.

SRJ’s Adult Book Club
Jan 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The adult book club will be reading the book, Evicted by Matthew Desmond. Evicted is a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Matthew Desmond follows eight families in Milwaukee as they each struggle to keep a roof over their heads. Hailed as “wrenching and revelatory” (The Nation), “vivid and unsettling” (New York Review of Books), Evicted transforms our understanding of poverty and economic exploitation while providing fresh ideas for solving one of twenty-first-century America’s most devastating problems. Its unforgettable scenes of hope and loss remind us of the centrality of home, without which nothing else is possible.

Meeting times will be in person at YWCA Hanover on Wednesday, January 12, and Wednesday, January 26 from 7-8 pm.
