Marking Humanity‘s editor, Shlomit Kriger, and Holocaust survivor Andy Réti connected with dozens of professors and students of various backgrounds at the Hillel students loft at Ryerson University in Toronto on Nov. 10, 2015. Andy related his experience as a child in Hungary and his continued efforts to educate others through his talks and the Ride to Remember annual motorcycle rally. Shlomit shared lessons from the Holocaust and additional survivors featured in the book. The group then participated in a discussion about discrimination, standing up to injustice, and peacebuilding. Students were encouraged to note what they learned or would consider moving forward through an expressive arts response activity. Here is a photo of some of the responses, which have been put on display at Hillel.
