The speeker, Elizabeth Igra was great. The snacks were great. It was an intimate group, but very powerful. A personal story, not an academic lecture. As an educator, she makes the leap into areas that are related to the Holocaust, but addresses the issues of human behavior that preceeds it and are the roots of racism and bullying. Such a well documented event that needs to be told and learned from. Her noprofit is dedicated to training teachers and suppporting students. I will be looking for more.

I so wanted to go but got a severe migraine and couldn't attend. I sincerely hope to get another chance to hear her speak.

Since FAN is not affiliated with any government, religion, or ethnic group, its sponsorship of this particular event should be on a general basis of recognizing the horrors which perverted social beliefs can wreak on fellow humans. As such, it should generalize its recognition of ALL holucausts and not select the suffering of one ethnic group over that of others. Specific ethic groups may commemorate their personal suffering within their own community. Mass murder is an equal opportunity tragedy: let's recognize it a such in a free spirited community such as FAN.

This is such an important event. Can I bring my two teenagers to hear Ms. Igra speak?
