Our thoughts are turning to International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

As we remember those who perished and those who survived today, we are also caught in the memory of the atrocities of October 7 and the horror of hostages who are still suffering.

We hear and heed the warning of David Shentow who spoke to so many students here at Carleton that when people show their hate of Jews we must face that hatred.

In the last 111 days, our work here at the Zelikovitz Centre for Jewish Studies has focused on supporting students and fellow faculty who suffer the cumulative intimidation, harassment, misinformation, and incitement to hate that has risen up on Canadian campuses and across Canada.  We continue to take every case of antisemitism on this campus seriously and redouble our efforts and our commitment to supporting and advancing the scholarship and teaching of the Holocaust and Antisemitism.
