Auschwitz: Preserving a place of terror - June 17

The Union League Club of Chicago and The Standard Club welcome Wojciech Soczewica, Director General of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation.

During this timely, complimentary webinar, Director General Soczewica will be interviewed by club member Michael Traison. They will discuss the physical enormity of Auschwitz-Birkenau (20 separate camps), the events that occurred there, its continuing importance in contemporary life – especially in light of last year’s global increase in anti-Semitic attacks, and the mission of the Foundation to preserve Auschwitz-Birkenau for future generations.

This program is presented in collaboration with the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists, AntiDefamation League, Chicago Loop Synagogue, Decalogue Society, Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities, and the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago.
