2018 Holocaust Living History Workshops Highlight Law, Justice, and Accountability after the Holocaust

The 2017-18 Holocaust Living History Workshops (HLHW) continue this January at the University of California San Diego with six profound lectures focusing on the roles of memory and justice in the process of renewal following the persecution of countless individuals during the Holocaust. The 2018 speakers will remind us that these concepts constitute the threads that run through the tapestry of a history that is tragic yet also inspiring.

Co-hosted by the UC San Diego Library and the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program, the HLHW lecture series invites members of the public and campus community to attend the events to hear personal stories and memories from Holocaust survivors, witnesses, relatives, and scholars. The goal of the program is to broaden understanding of the past, foster tolerance, and preserve the memory of victims and survivors of the Holocaust while emphasizing their continued relevance in the world today.

All events are free and held on the UC San Diego campus in Geisel Library’s Seuss Room from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., with some exceptions (as noted below).

January 17—The Holocaust Litigations: Defining Guilt, Extracting Reparations —With William Lerach

Sponsored by Philip and Gayle Tauber

William Lerach

The first event this winter will be held on Wednesday, January 17 featuring William Lerach who was part of a small group of American lawyers who, decades later, exposed the widespread complicity of major Swiss banks and multi-national German corporations in the Holocaust. Lerach will discuss the litigations that recovered stolen property worth several billion dollars. He’s also a member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, and is the recipient of the prestigious Legacy Laureate Award from the University of Pittsburgh. Patrick Patterson, a professor of history at UC San Diego, will provide an introduction and comments.

February 7—Face to Face with Demjanjuk: The Elusive Quest for Closure—With Martin Haas

On Wednesday, February 7, the HLHW series will feature UC San Diego professor emeritus Martin Haas who will share the tragic history of his family’s death and his experience in court where he came face-to-face with the man who was involved in his family’s murder. Haas was born into a Dutch-Jewish family and spent World War II in hiding with a Catholic family. In 1946, he was adopted by a distant relative and emigrated to Israel. Years later he moved to California to pursue a Ph.D.

February 28—East West Street: On the Origins of “Genocide” and “Crimes against Humanity”—With Award-Winning Author, Philippe Sands

Wikipedia in the Classroom: Creating Meaningful Instruction Experiences
9:00 – 10:30am, Tuesday, October 11, 2016
Geisel Library, Seuss Room

RSVP online

Coffee and light refreshments will be served.

Have you thought about using Wikipedia in the classroom? Utilizing Wikipedia can help to increase students’ information literacy, enable them to become critical thinkers and producers of knowledge, and provides an opportunity for them to contribute their work in a space beyond the classroom. It also engages them in the editorial process and allows for a collaborative experience.

Join LiAnna Davis (Director of Programs, Wiki Education Foundation) and Jami Mathewson (Educational Partnerships Manager, Wiki Education Foundation) in a workshop on the many options for critically engaging Wikipedia as a classroom assignment.

Questions? Contact Lia Friedman (lgfriedman@ucsd.edu) or Gayatri Singh (gasingh@ucsd.edu).

Library Carpentry Workshops, July 18-22

Posted On: July 8, 2016

A free Library Carpentry workshop will be held in the Seuss Room in Geisel Library July 18-22 from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm. No coding experience is needed to take these lessons! Click here for details. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. The workshop is free but registration is required due to limited space of 50 participants. You may register for any or all days of the workshop.

Registration and Workshop Information:

Day One (jargon, regular expressions) – http://ucsd.libcal.com/event/2614294

Day Two (bash, shell) – http://ucsd.libcal.com/event/2614295

Day Three (Git, Github) – http://ucsd.libcal.com/event/2614296

Day Four (Open Refine) – http://ucsd.libcal.com/event/2614297

Day Five (office hours/open discussion, no registration needed)

Library Carpentry is part of the Carpentry movement, whose mission is to train researchers and librarians in the technological tools and computational skills needed in today’s research environment. Participants in the workshops can go on to become instructors, and can add lessons or improve current ones to better serve their specific discipline, thus building a dynamic and re-usable set of instructional material. Library Carpentry was initially a one-time event held in London, and there have been offshoots held in Australia, but this will be the very first Library Carpentry workshop held in the United States!

openscienceflyer

There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered:

  • Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-Analysis plans
  • Open source tools like the Center for Open Science’s Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in a scientific workflow.

This workshop is aimed at faculty, staff, and students across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows.

RSVP:  https://goo.gl/bIHJ5Z

LOCATION: San Diego Supercomputer Center in the Synthesis Center, La Jolla, CA 92093
DATE: Friday, April 29, 2016
TIME: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
