The Elie Wiesel Center invites you to a free dinner and discussion with Jewish Studies professor Jennifer Cazenave! As the last survivors of the Holocaust are passing away with each day, we must consider how stories of the Holocaust will be told moving forward. What role will fiction play in the transmission of this event in years to come? Should a testimony even become fiction? How will a shift away from a survivor-centered approach impact how genocides and mass murders are both researched and taught? Bring your questions and your appetite. A pizza dinner will be served! Open to all Boston University students.
