Bus Trip Planned for Montreal Holocaust Centre April 9
Students interested in taking a guided tour of the Montreal Memorial Holocaust Centre can sign up for a seat on a bus scheduled to leave the Angell College Center Sunday, April 9 at 8 a.m.
The center’s mission is to “educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the Holocaust while sensitizing the public to the universal perils of anti-Semitism, racism, hate and indifference.
“Through its museum, its commemorative programs and educational initiatives, the center promotes respect for diversity and the sanctity of human life.”
Students on the tour will see the permanent exhibitions and have a chance to meet and speak with a Holocaust survivor.
The $10 fee includes round-trip bus fare, admission to the center and a box lunch catered by Chartwells. Seating is limited and reservations are requested. Participants must have a valid passport or enhanced driver’s license to participate and be eligible to travel to Canada and back into the United States.
The annual trip is a project of the Department of History, religious studies minor, the History Association, and the Jewish Studies Program and is supported by the School of Arts and Science, College Auxiliary Services and the Plattsburgh Student Association.
