-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The Holocaust Education Series is presented by the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre from October 26 to November 6, 2011: 10 days of testimonies, workshops, films, expert presentations and discussions that place memory at the heart of our future.
