Put Out the Flames of Hate Program is March 25


The Association of Residence Halls (ARH) Programming Board is sponsoring a program, “Put Out the Flames of Hate - The Holocaust: Its Relevance Today,” presented by Tim Scott at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, in 210 Clifford Hall. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend.

Scott, a practicing attorney in Wisconsin, has spoken to thousands of students and adults about this tragic period in history. Much more than a mere historical study of the Holocaust, however, Scott's presentation makes this history relevant for Americans today by relating it to current developments in our nation, communities and schools. Through the dramatic use of story, video, and slides, he uses the Holocaust history to challenge the listener to identify the "flames" of prejudice, racism, bias or misunderstanding in his or her own heart. In so doing, the Holocaust becomes a catalyst for positive personal growth and change for individuals, communities and schools. Scott has law degrees from Eberhard-Karls University in Tuebingen, Germany, and from the University of Minnesota.

Faculty are encouraged to announce this event to students.
