Moving from Amnesia to Memory - Join us this Nov. 5th

Collective Amnesia:

The 75th Anniversary of the Nanking Massacre

“To forget a Holocaust is to kill twice.” Elie Wiesel

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Nanking Massacre, when the Japanese Imperial Army brutally raped, tortured, and murdered more than 300,000 Chinese people. Horrific in intensity and scale, this atrocity remains relatively obscure in public awareness, while the memories and legacies of this history are alive today and continue to have a profound impact. 

The CBC’s Michael Enright will moderate a panel with novelist Joy Kogawa, educator Gerry Connelly, playwright Diana Tso, and Fran Sterling, Senior Research and Development Associate, Facing History. Together we will explore how art and education can lay the foundation of peace, reconciliation and healing for the victims, their communities, and our global community.

Monday, 5 November |  7:00 pm | William Doo Auditorium | New College University of Toronto | 45  Willcocks Street | 416–901–3831

Brought to you by Toronto Association for Learning and Preserving the History of World War II in Asia, Facing History and Ourselves, and The Equity Studies Program - New College at University of Toronto.
