The CSU community will step back in time this week as part of the university’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.

“The further and further we get, the more survivors are dying, and it’s important to educate people about genocide before we lose that piece of history,” said Rabbi Allison Peiser of Hillel.

Hillel, Students for Holocaust and Genocide Awareness, ASCSU and ASAP are the hosts for Holocaust and Genocide Awareness Week.
