The Greater Lafayette Holocaust Remembrance Conference (GLHRC) was founded in 1981. The goals of the GLHRC are to continue awareness of the Nazis’ War against the Jews from 1933-1945, to honor the victims and survivors of that Holocaust, and to promote individual and community responsibility for combating the forces of ignorance, hatred, and prejudice today. The conference includes art, musical programs, films, teacher workshops, as well as lectures by well-known scholars/authorities on the Holocaust.
