Holocaust survivor Fred Amram, who is an award-wining professor of communications, and an author and curator, will be the honored guest at an event in recognition of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) 12 p.m. Friday, May 8 in Rooms 40 A&B at the Ramsey County Courthouse, 15 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul.
Amram will share stories of his experiences in Nazi Germany and as a Holocaust survivor, and will recount his difficulties assimilating in the United States. He will also connect the common causes that modern genocides often share.
The Saint Paul Department of Human Rights and Equal Economic Opportunity in partnership with World Without Genocide will host the event. St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman will introduce Amram, and Ellen Kennedy, executive director of World Without Genocide, will lead a question-and-answer session.
The event is free and open to the public, and no reservations are necessary. For information visit: www.worldwithoutgenocide.org/events-and-programs/related-events.
