On-Site & Online Panel Discussion: Repair and Resilience: The Legacy of Genocide Across Generations  

July 17, 2024 | 6:30pm CDT

On-site & Online

Join Illinois Holocaust Museum and 3G Chicago for an extraordinary intergenerational conversation with four descendants of genocides across geography and time. As inheritors of a history they never lived, the past reverberates in their lives, families, communities, and nations. These descendants will share how the legacy of genocide continues to impact current and future generations, exploring the power of memory and strength found in resilience, and how coping with such a legacy offers an opportunity to discover our collective humanity.

The conversation will feature Laura Ouk, daughter of Cambodian genocide survivors, Joe Kanengiser, 3rd generation descendant of Holocaust Survivors, Ari Antreassian, 3rd generation descendant of Armenian genocide survivors, and Josee Starr, descendant of Native American genocide survivors. The conversation will be moderated by Kate W. English, Executive Director of Educators Institute for Human Rights.

Reservations required. Free to the public.

Community Partners: Armenian National Committee of Illinois; Mitchell Museum of the American Indian
