Special Events at the KHRCA

KHRCA Colloquium 2016 

This year's Colloquium series seeks to put the past in conversation with the present by exploring the history of genocide and refugees. We will explore the genocides that create refugee populations, and examine the challenges facing refugee populations as they seek to find asylum in countries and communities that are often resistant to accepting them.

The Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives Colloquium series is supported by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed on this site do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
