Today marks the first day of the 7th Annual Conference on the Holocaust, a week-long series of events (sponsored by the Hillel foundation), which focuses on the theme of "Don't Let the Past Slip Through Our Fingers." Throughout the week, a collection of student photographs focusing on Holocaust memorials and sites of historical significance will be on display at Hillel during regular building hours. More information can be had at 624-6561. And if you cannot make it to Hillel today, at least try to stop by the 24-Hour Vigil on the Mall. A separate photo display will be on site to complement a reading of more than 22,000 names of Holocaust victims. You may contribute to Hillel any names you would like to be read. Brad Schencker will give you more information at 624-6561.
