Shenandoah University and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum are sponsoring an international gathering of scholars intent on keeping alive the memory of the Holocaust.
Teachers and historians will meet from Sunday through Tuesday on Shenandoah's Winchester campus to discuss ways to introduce new generations to that horrible period. They say they are battling dimming memories and a rise of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial on college campuses.
One of the scheduled speakers says there is a tremendous amount of materials available for university-level instruction on the Holocaust.
