Tulsa's Temple Israel Will Host the 17th Annual Interfaith Holocaust Commemoration
The locally based Council for Holocaust Education will present its 17th Annual Interfaith Holocaust Commemoration --- or Yom Hashoah Commemoration --- tomorrow night (Thursday the 1st) at 7pm here in Tulsa. This event will happen at Temple Israel, at 2004 E. 22nd Place, and the featured speaker will be Dr. Nadine Blumer, who will speak about "Forgotten Holocaust Victims: How Germany Remembers the Roma." Our guest on ST today is Suzie Bogle, the newly appointed Director of Holocaust Education at the Jewish Federation of Tulsa. (Bogle is taking over a post long held by Eva Unterman, a living legend in our community who survived the Holocaust as a child, and who's worked tirelessly to both establish and promote meaningful Holocaust-remembrance programs.) As Bogle tells us, Dr. Blumer is a sociologist who recently finished a fellowship at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and who's focused in her academic work on the culture, history, and persecution of the Romani (or "gypsy") people. You can learn much more about tomorrow night's Yom Hashoah Commemoration at this link. Also on this edition of our show, commentator Connie Cronley looks back on the life and learning of the late Martin Gardner, a world-renowned mathematician who was born in Tulsa 100 years ago.
