Stories are Stronger Than Hate: A Call to Action


Through the personal narrative of Holocaust survivor Pinchas Gutter and other stories, participants in the Stories are Stronger Than Hate: A Call to Action student program will explore how stories create the possibility to learn about ourselves, about others and about how we can affect the change we want to see in our communities right now.

As we commemorate 75 years since the liberation of the concentration camps and the end of World War II, we will consider what we have learned about the experiences of survivors and witnesses of genocide and reflect on how that knowledge can help us take action to counteract hate.
