Reserve Your Spot for the 2018-19 Holocaust Living History Workshops


The 2018-19 Holocaust Living History Workshop (HLHW) series continues this fall with an exhibition, a documentary and eight compelling authors highlighting the diverse journeys of survivors and victims of the Holocaust. Every year the popular HLHW, co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library and the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program, invites high-caliber speakers to campus to share inspiring stories that broaden our understanding of the past, foster tolerance and preserve the memories of victims and survivors of the Holocaust.

All events are free and open to the public. The workshops are held on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Geisel Library’s Seuss Room from 5 to 7 p.m., with some exceptions. Due to the success of the program, registration is now required for all events. Walk-ins welcome based on space and availability. To register by phone, contact Ellysa Lim at (858) 534-1183.

*Online registration will begin Saturday, September 1.
