UNIC will launch its 2017 Holocaust education outreach activites at one of the training sessions for Model United Nations Students on Saturday 28 January 2017. The event will include the screening of the film titled " A path to Nazi Genocide" and will also feature the latest addition to the Centre's travelling exhibit - " State of Deception" . A visual journey that examines how the Nazi used images and the latest communication technonogies at their time to spread false information about Jews and other undesirables, with the aim of winning civil society over in their ambition to create a euphamistic 'aryan' led world.
The activity targets about one hundred and ten school students who are participants in MUN 2017 that is being organised by the Rotary Club of Central Port of Spain in collaboration with sponsors like the College of Sceince, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago and others. The event will be hosted by the COSTAATT at its recently completed purpose build campus in Chaguanas, Trinidad.
UNIC has been hosting events and conducting outreach activites on the Holocaust since 2007 as part of a global programme that was created by the United Nations Department of Public Information at the request of the UN General Assembly ( Resolution 60/7).
International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust is observed every year on 27 January. [ more information ]
