For Immediate Release


Holocaust Instructional Set Dedication Ceremony May 2

Catawba Valley Community College will host a special presentation at 2:30 p.m. on May 2 to acknowledge receipt of a Holocaust Instructional Set acquired through a grant from the N.C. Council on the Holocaust.

CVCC is the only community college in North Carolina to house such an extensive Holocaust instructional collection.

The presentation will take place in the CVCC Library located on the second floor of the Cuyler A. Dunbar Bldg.

The event is being held in conjunction with the National Days of Remembrance, the time recognized by our nation to commemorate the Holocaust. The United States Congress established this day (May 1 this year) and created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims.

N.C. Council on the Holocaust regional representative Nancy Miller will officially present the instructional collection that will be housed in the CVCC Library. It will be used by CVCC students as well as loaned to regional middle and high schools.

CVCC history faculty James Andersen will present “The Nazis Didn’t Work Alone: How the Reich’s ‘Enemies’ Aided the Holocaust.” Anderson has taught history at the high school and college level since 2006. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degree in history at Appalachian State University. He attended Holocaust education training at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. in 2008.
