Official description

Chulalongkorn University will host the “2015 UN International Holocaust Memorial Day: Keeping the Memory Alive” event, at the Mahitaladhibesra Building’s room 212, tomorrow, from 2pm to 5pm.

Held to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which commemorates the 6 million Jews and others who perished in Nazi camps during World War II, the event will open with a screening of The Power Of Good, a Czech documentary directed by Matej Minac.

The film tells the story of British humanitarian Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 Jewish children in Czechoslovakia, which was soon to be occupied by the Nazis, in 1939. He brought them to Britain, managing to keep the rescue
a secret for nearly 50 years. In 2002 he was made a knight by Queen Elizabeth II.

The screening will be followed by
a panel discussion entitled “Holocaust Messages To Asean". Speakers on the panel include Chy Terith, executive officer of the Documentation Center of Cambodia; Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in the US; Prof Emeritus Dr Surichai Wun-gaeo, director of the Center for Peace and Conflict Studies at Chulalongkorn University; HE Ambassador Kobsak Chutikul, secretary-general of the Asian Peace and Reconciliation Council; and Somtow Sucharitkul, a musical composer and author.

On display will be “The Courage To Remember”, a travelling exhibition from the educational branch of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. It ties together the past and the present, showing the dangerous and destructive impact of ignorance, hate and intolerance. After the event, the exhibition will move to the building’s lobby, from Wednesday until Feb 4.

Those interested in attending should register by 1pm on the day of the event. The Mahitaladhibesra Building is near the Faculty of Commerce and Accountancy, Chulalongkorn University, Phaya Thai Road.
