Holocaust Awareness Council at the Ohio State University

The Holocaust Awareness Council seeks to educate Ohio State students, staff, and faculty and the wider Columbus community about the Holocaust, genocide, and modern antisemitism. While the term "awareness" may seem a less appropriate choice than "education," as if to imply we seek to raise money or to rally people for a social cause, we do not simply seek to educate people about the historical events of the Holocaust. The council also wishes to make people aware of the role the Holocaust plays in our contemporary world.
