College’s Honors Program Students to Present Reports/Interviews with Holocaust Survivors; Survivors to Attend

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – Students from SUNY Orange’s Honors Program will welcome survivors of the Holocaust to the College’s Middletown campus and present life stories of several of those survivors during a Holocaust Remembrance Night at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 30 in the Gilman Center for International Education.

Throughout the Fall semester, students enrolled in the College’s “Honors Seminar: The Holocaust” course have interviewed Holocaust survivors, hearing first-hand accounts of some of those who lived through it. Students have written papers inspired by their interviews and also created emotionally moving posters and projects inspired by their own experiences and those of their Holocaust interviewees.

Several students will present their stories on Nov. 30 and the class will hold a discussion on the Holocaust. In addition, some of the Holocaust survivors will be in attendance.

SUNY Orange Global Studies instructor Heidi Weber teaches the Honors seminar and is coordinating the Holocaust Remembrance Night. Admission is free and all are welcome. For more information, contact Weber at (845) 341-4375 or at heidi.weber@sunyorange.edu.

The College’s Honors Program offers highly motivated and talented students opportunities for personal growth, educational discovery and academic achievement through advanced coursework, community service and an independent research project. Its goal is help students build self-confidence by tackling new academic challenges, become leaders on campus and in their community and establish a foundation for success in future academic and professional endeavors.
