The University of Arizona Hillel Foundation’s Annual Holocaust Vigil is a 24-hour program dedicated to the remembrance of the Holocaust on the University of Arizona campus, as well as an opportunity to increase tolerance and understanding both on campus and in Tucson.
This year’s Vigil will run from Wed, March 20, 2013, at noon until Thurs, March 21, 2013 at 12:15pm on the UA Mall.
The event provides a large variety of discussions, films and exhibitions that address the importance of this year’s theme: “Silence Helps the Oppressors.”
All events are open to the public and free of charge.
Also highlighted is the Butterfly Project: Zikaron V’Tikvah---Remembrance and Hope, which seeks to commemorate the 1.5 million children who perished during the Holocaust. We would be honored if you would consider attending this year’s event and painting a butterfly in memory of one of the children. The butterflies which are created at this year’s event will be on display at Hillel.
