Holocaust remembrance at building 905 April 16

Fort McCoy's observance of the Holocaust National Days of Remembrance will be held Thursday, April 16, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at building 905.

A meet-and-greet event will be held at McCoy's Community Club, building 1571, afterward.

The guest speaker will be Stephen Feinberg, who retired from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., in December 2011. Feinberg was the director of the National Outreach program at the museum from 2000 to 2009. Feinberg also served as a member of the U.S. delegation to what is now known as the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance from 1999 to 2011. He also served as a consultant for UNESCO, the University of South Carolina Shoah Foundation, and the Conference on Jewish Materials Claims Against Germany (The Claims Conference).
