FIRST SURVIVOR LUNCHEON AT MERCER COUNTY HOLOCAUST and GENOCIDE RESOURCE CENTER
The luncheon was provided on October 28, 2015 by the Kappa Delta Pi Education Honor Society in collaboration with the Holocaust and Genocide Resource Center. Holocaust studies students in Professor
Coenen’s Honor classes were partnered with survivors for an opportunity to hear their life stories
And to ask questions. The students were highly engaged in this interaction and acknowledged the
experience was more than they could ever gain from a history book or documentary.
The luncheon, the first of its kind at Mercer County Community College, was especially important
to help students know individuals who endured the Holocaust as more than simply survivors.
The honored guests were Dr. Charles Rojer; Cantor David Wisnia, Dr. Vera Goodkin, and
Louis Shulman. James McEvoy, a reporter from the Trenton Times attended the event and reported
it in the paper.
