Frank Phillips students establishing Holocaust Remembrance Day

March 20, 2012

On Monday afternoon, Frank Phillips College Anthropology Students made a presentation to the FPC Board of Regents to establish a Holocaust Remembrance Day for April 19th, 2012, in conjunction with the Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust from Sunday, April 15th, 2012 through Sunday, April 22nd, 2012, and accept the organization’s Holocaust Remembrance Proclamation.
Since 2009, FPC Anthropology students have marked the Holocaust Remembrance Days with a library display regarding genocide. FPC sophomore student Katey Kasch told the Board of Regents that the goal for the organization this year is to establish April 19th of each year as the Holocaust Remembrance Day for Frank Phillips College and to give all FPC students and people in the community to take part in a ceremony that would take place on campus that day. In her presentation to the board, Kasch said, “We would like this to be an opportunity for all Frank Phillips College students to come together and work for a common goal. Frank Phillips College is a place that is big on tradition and would like to see the Remembrance Day become something the college does annually.”
Kasch went on to say that remembering the Holocaust teaches students about genocide and the best way to prevent genocide from taking place in the future is to continue educating people about it.
The college and its students have worked hard in recent years to remember the 6,000,000 Jewish lives lost during the Holocaust, including establishing the Penny Remembrance Project in 2007 raising 6,000,000 pennies towards scholarships. As of Monday, 1,000,000 pennies have been collected for the Penny Remembrance Project.
The Board of Regents approved the students’ Holocaust Awareness Proclamation and the establishment of Holocaust Remembrance Day for April 19th, 2012.
Kasch said the plans for April 19th include having a reception beginning at around 8:00 a.m. and plan to featuring speakers who were affected by the Holocaust and involved in the rescue and liberation of those in concentration camps. The ceremony would also honor soldiers who fought during World War II.
