TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- The 37th Greater Lafayette Holocaust Remembrance conference will take place this weekend.

Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski and West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis signed the holocaust remembrance decree together Monday.

This year's theme is "Difficult Conversations: Come to the Table."

Organizers say it's all about learning from the past and working toward a peaceful future.

Mayor Roswarski says what you do in one community affects the other community.

"We don't support hate, we don't support those types of activities," Roswarski said. "We support love and inclusion and bringing people together and we're going to stand united as one community."
