GALLERY: Holocaust Remembrance

The Heller Service Corps hosted a Holocaust Remembrance Cultural Life Program in observance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, January 27.

During the event, which drew about 140 students, Furman Chaplain Vaughn CroweTipton presented a 15-minute historical overview of the Holocaust. Students also watched a video “The Renaissance Man,” which is about Max and Trude Heller’s escape from Austria during the Holocaust and the contributions the couple made to the modernization and evolution of downtown Greenville, South Carolina.

As part of a reflection activity, students thought about the ways society can work to ensure an event similar to the Holocaust never occurs again. Students wrote their ideas on paper butterflies, which symbolize hope and rebirth often associated with the Holocaust. The butterflies are now displayed throughout the Trone Student Center.
