A Ukrainian concentration camp survivor will speak at Konover Auditorium today at 1:30 p.m. as part of UConn Hillel's Holocaust Day of Remembrance.

Al Linder of Stamford is the keynote speaker. Other events include a "Walk To Remember" sponsored by Alpha Epsilon Pi and an all-day "Wall of Hope" on Dow Field.

Hillel Student Rights intern and 8th-semester political science major Eric Weinstein said that the chance to hear Linder speak is a unique opportunity.

"We're the last generation to see these people first-hand. You can't substitute that first-hand commentary for what happened in the Holocaust," said Weinstein in a telephone interview.
Students are also invited to leave messages on the wall of remembrance. Participants forthe walk are asked to wear black, according to a press release.

Weinstein said that he hopes that the event will raise awareness about present-day atrocities. "The whole point is that the Holocaust is not one genocide; it is one of many."
