YU’s Fish Center Participates in International Holocaust Remembrance Day in Rwanda

In recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Dr. Shay Pilnik, director of Yeshiva University’s Emil A. and Jenny Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies; and the Center’s founder, Mr. Emil Fish, a holocaust survivor, journeyed to Rwanda to honor the memory of the Holocaust. The unique event allowed two peoples, the Jews and the Rwandans, who have both experienced genocides, to find ways to honor those killed together and promote understanding.
