CDS Students Participate in Recording King History
The King Heritage & Cultural Centre (KHCC) has been doing some very inventive things this past year while their doors have remained closed due to COVID restrictions.
Perhaps the most exciting is forging a relationship with a local software company, Treasured, Inc., resulting in a free virtual exhibit titled Stories of King, featuring interesting and lesser-known tales from the Township.
In recognition of Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 7-8, Mr. Downer’s class took part in an activity put on by Liberation75. The class got to hear the renowned Holocaust historian, Deborah Lipstadt, speak about antisemitism past and present during class on Wednesday morning. Dr. Lipstadt is a professor of Holocaust Studies at Emory College in Atlanta and well known for winning a libel case against Holocaust denier, David Irving, in 2000. She is also a historical consultant to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.
