Holocaust, genocide survivors speak at Promise Project at Buchtel High School
Written by Staff Report
Buchtel Community Learning Center will host a public event featuring two survivors of historical atrocities as part of its history and English students’ Promise Project. El Fadel Arbab, a Darfur genocide survivor, and Leo Silberman, a Holocaust survivor, will appear May 23 at 6 p.m.
The event is free and also will feature displays and artwork by the students involved in The Promise Project.
The Promise Project is under the direction of Kristy Nelson and Drew Hoisington, English and history teachers, respectively. The two instructors co-teach a class called American Studies, with the goal of engaging their students with community-based projects. The Buchtel PTA is a sponsor of this event.
