Program Title: Decision Making in Times of Injustice
Presented by Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine's (located at UMA) Executive Director Liz Helitzer, this program focuses on providing individuals with an awareness of the enormity of the crimes committed during the Nazi Holocaust, and the fact that thousands of ordinary people participated in perpetrating these crimes, while thousands more stood by as quiet witnesses. The material in this program reminds us of the importance of living in a democracy whose citizens are capable of making informed judgments, not only on behalf of themselves, but on behalf of a larger community.
This event is free-of-charge and all are encouraged to attend.
Liz Helitzer, Executive Director, began her time at the HHRC in January of 2012 as the office manager and an educator. In August of 2014 she was thrilled to be named Executive Director.
