Anniversary Celebration Comes to a Close

The Tolerance Resource Center concluded a memorable year-long celebration of its tenth anniversary on April 10, 2008.

Over the academic year, the Center held lectures featuring keynote speeches from Sr. Gemma Del Duca, the first-ever non-Israeli to receive Yad Vashem’s Excellence in Holocaust Education Award, Dr. James Waller, a recognized scholar in the field of Holocaust and genocide studies, and Sr. Eileen Quinlan, SND, Ph.D. ’74, associate professor of English and communication.

The Center also sponsored artistic exhibits including 50 Faces: The Holocaust Remembered, by internationally-known photographer Herb Ascherman, a dramatic reading of All Things Being Equal, by award-winning playwright Faye Sholiton, and the debut of Walk, Don’t Ride, written by Notre Dame College faculty member Peter Manos and performed by the Notre Dame College Vocal Ensemble.

Among the many honored guests at these events were Holocaust survivors from the Greater Cleveland area, who expressed their appreciation for the events and mission of the Tolerance Resource Center.
