Lessons of the Holocaust program

October 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Iowa historian, Brad Wilkening, will be at the Madrid Library on October 17 at 6:30 pm to present his program Lessons of the Holocaust.

Wilkening will address how people can apply lessons of the Holocaust in today’s world where immoral acts are still happening. He started teaching in 1975 and has done extensive studies of the Holocaust since 2009.

​Wilkening finds the need for Holocaust education and the lessons people can learn from it more relevant now than ever. Inhumanity occurs around the world almost daily and he wants to make a difference in the lives of as many people as he can reach. “After this event (Holocaust) we said ‘NEVER AGAIN,’ yet there are numerous places today where genocide is happening. We as individuals must do our part to help humanity survive the inhumanity that some have toward others,” said Wilkening. His goal is to teach people that they need to create a safer more caring environment.

This event is free and open to the public, for more information please contact the library at 515-795-3846 or angie@madrid.lib.ia.us
