OSU partners with US Holocaust Memorial Museum for upcoming event


Oregon State University’s Holocaust Memorial Program is collaborating with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in a panel discussion on Thursday, November 18 at 6 p.m.

This event is one of a series of programs taking place at universities in the Pacific Northwest. Each event focuses on particular aspects of racial persecution in North America and Europe from the 1920s to the 1950s.

The OSU roundtable is titled “Battles for Belonging: Race, Citizenship and Inclusion in the Pacific Northwest and Nazi Germany”. According to Dr Paul Kopperman, professor of history at OSU and chairman of the Holocaust Memorial Committee, the panel “will address the policies of citizenship and belonging in Nazi Germany and the Pacific Northwest” . The discussion will draw on historical knowledge while confronting contemporary issues of inclusion and democracy.

Panelists include Patricia Heberer Rice, senior historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Allison Davis-White Eyes, vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion at Fielding Graduate University, and Chris Stout, associate professor at OSU’s School of Public Policy, among others.

This event is a collaboration between the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Oregon State University, OSU College of Liberal Arts, and OSU School of History, Philosophy and Religion. Details on how to access the roundtable are to come.
