The CSU community will step back in time this week as part of the universityâ€™s 15th annual Holocaust and Genocide Awareness week, running today through Friday.
The week consists of different events commemorating those who have suffered as a result of genocide and stresses the importance of awareness regarding past events and a hopeful future.
â€œThe further and further we get, the more survivors are dying, and itâ€™s important to educate people about genocide before we lose that piece of history,â€ said Rabbi Allison Peiser of Hillel.
Hillel, Students for Holocaust and Genocide Awareness, ASCSU and ASAP are the hosts for HolocaustÂ and Genocide Awareness Week.
