At Jewish Studies Lecture, Researcher Discusses Commonalities between Holocaust, Guatemalan Genocide Narratives

Thursday, December 06, 2018

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Tarica’s research compares genocide survivor testimonials from Guatemala and the Holocaust. She presented her research to an SF State audience on Thursday, November 29, as the last talk in the Jewish Studies department’s Holocaust Across the Disciplines for the 2018 fall semester.

SF State student Noe Torres has tried to attend every lecture offered under the Holocaust Across the Disciplines series.

“I think it’s an important topic, and just like we’re learning in class, keeping those memories alive is important,” Torres said. “There’s just so much that we get to learn about these people and the atrocity. It’s a scary thought to think those stories could be forgotten.”
