HOLOCAUST SPEAKER RETURNS TO UACCM

Almost 70 years have passed since the end of World War II, which concluded a horrendous time in our world’s history known as the Holocaust. The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton and the University of Central Arkansas are proud to announce that Henry Greenbaum, a Holocaust survivor, will visit Morrilton and Conway in March for three speaking appearances.

Greenbaum is a speaker volunteer from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. On March 12, he will share his story at 9:45 a.m. at the H.B. White Auditorium on the Morrilton High School campus. At 6:30 that evening, he will speak at the Fine Arts Auditorium at UACCM. Additionally, Greenbaum will speak at 7:00 p.m. on March 13 at the Conway Senior High School James H. Clark Auditorium. Each of these events is free and open to the public.

Though we have brought in Holocaust survivor speakers in the past, each speaker is different and has a unique, heart-wrenching story to tell. As time moves forward, we have fewer and fewer opportunities to hear first-hand the experiences of those persecuted during the Holocaust. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum advocates in its slogan why hearing these stories is so important: “Never Again Begins with You.” Please join us at one of these events as we welcome Henry Greenbaum to Arkansas.

For more information about these events, contact Courtney Stell by phone at 501-977-2142 or by email to stell@uaccm.edu.
