Holocaust Education Week | Documentary & Discussion

Event Recording

Noor Cultural Centre is a proud supporter of Holocaust Education Week.  This year’s theme is ‘Illuminating the Shadows, Untold Stories’.  Please join us for our program, exploring the history of a precursor of the Holocaust.


Screening | ‘Namibia Genocide and the Second Reich’ (BBC, 2005; 58 mins) 
A hundred years ago, three quarters of the Herero people of the German colony of modern-day Namibia were killed, many in concentration camps. Today, the descendants of the survivors are seeking reparations from the German government. This film tells this oft-forgotten story, and its links to German racial theories that were also the basis for the subsequent Holocaust. 

Discussion | led by Professor Ivan Kalmar (Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto) 

Date: Saturday November 3, 2018
Time: 7 pm
Location: Auditorium, Noor Cultural Centre
