Confronting Antisemitism: Testimony from Channy Chhi Laux
|Date||Thu, May 6, 7:30pm - 8:30pm|
Series III of Confronting Antisemitism will focus on the patterns of genocide. To commemorate the Cambodian Genocide, this series will include inspiring testimony from Channy, survivor of the Cambodian Genocide and member of the JFCS William J. Lowenberg Speakers Bureau.
The Jewish Family and Children's Services Holocaust Center invites families, teachers, and students ages 13+ to learn about the Cambodian Genocide through the eyes of Channy, who courageously survived, started a new chapter of her life in the United States, and wrote the award-winning Memoir of a Thirteen-Year-Old Girl Surviving the Cambodian Genocide, 2017.
The Cambodian Genocide (1975–1979) was an explosion of mass violence. More than 1.5 million people were killed by the Khmer Rouge, a communist political group.
The Confronting Antisemitism Series is presented by the JFCS Holocaust Center and Marin County Office of Education in partnership with ADL, Beyond Differences, Congregation Rodef Sholom, Echoes & Reflections, Facing History & Ourselves, JFCS' Center for Children and Youth, and Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation.
