Lasry House to Contain

20-09-1999

The newly opened Lasry House will contain "The Center for Holocaust Studies" at Clark University. Academics from Israel, Europe, and the United States attended the accompanying conference and workshops, as did Teresa Swiebocka, Senior custodian and Director of the Museum's Department of Publishing and Information. She delivered a lecture titled, "The Many-Layered Symbolism of Auschwitz and its Effect on the Work of the Museum and Its Plans for the Future."

Clark University was the first institution in the world to offer a special doctoral program in Holocaust History.
