Jewish Student Group Hosts Holocaust Remembrance Day Event At Wofford

A Jewish student group at Wofford College held an event on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The group, Hillel, hosted four professors that offered different perspectives on the Holocaust Thursday morning.

Group leaders say that a look back is important to remember and remind students of the past.

“It is important to remember the Holocaust because we need to be reminded that humans have the potential to sink into the darkest of depths,”says Dr. Ron Robinson, the Perkins-Prothro Chaplain and professor of religion. “I once heard a Holocaust survivor say, ‘The opposite of love is not hate; it is indifference.’ He’s right. It is important for us to know what can happen when people are indifferent to cruelty.”

The group also holds other events throughout the year.
