T. William & Patricia Ayers Global Tipping Points Series - Confronting Genocide and Antisemitism: Recovering in the Aftermath
Tuesday, May 2 at 6 PM at Keene State College Alumni Center, Keene

Join NH Fulbright Association with the World Affairs Council, in partnership with the Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College, as our speakers discuss their reconciliation work in post-genocide Bosnia & Herzegovina. Audience members will explore lessons learned from these personal experiences and how these approaches can guide future reconciliation work. Healing does not come quickly or easily, meaning communities require ongoing support and unbiased efforts to repair community wounds.
