Cape May County Campus to Host Holocaust Speaker Oct. 11

September 27, 2012

 Atlantic Cape Community College will host Larry Hirsch, a second generation after-the-holocaust speaker, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Cape May County Campus, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, in room 212.

Both of Larry’s parents, Harry and Sophie Hirsch, were Holocaust survivors who first lived in Corbin City and then established the Montreal Inn in Cape May. Larry will speak about his parents’ experiences and the lessons we can learn from the Holocaust today.

The program is sponsored by Atlantic Cape’s Community Affairs Program, the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center.

The event is free and open to the community. For more information, call Torrina Bennett-Michael, (609) 343-4858. For directions, visit http://www.atlantic.edu/about/directions.htm.  

Atlantic Cape opened its Holocaust & Genocide Resource Collection at the Cape May County Campus last fall. The collection of books and teaching materials supports Atlantic Cape’s courses studying the Holocaust and is available to members of the community and local schools.
