WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Holocaust survivors and family members visited Purdue University Sunday for the 32nd Annual Holocaust Remembrance Conference.
The conference featured three keynote speakers, two of whom talked about the Holocaust through different perspectives.
A third talk informed attendees about the current situation going on in Syria.
The theme of this year's conference titled "From Living Memory," was to hear the stories from the people who lived through it.
"We still have some survivors," Chair of the Holocaust Committee Susan Prohofski said. "Not as many as we have had in the past because they are dying. As they die off, we're changing to written history, and it's different. You get a different perspective."
The conference will run until April 16th.
Committee members said they hope people remember the past, learn from it, and prevent such things from happening in the future.
