The Holocaust Awareness Series is an interdisciplinary forum of events and seminars that focuses on the origins, experiences and implications of genocide in the modern era. It looks not only at the groups systematically targeted by the Nazi regime, but also at those who were the victims of government-sponsored atrocities in Armenia, Cambodia, Rwanda, Iraq, and the Balkan region, as well as the genocides currently taking place in the South Sudan, Myanmar, and China. Our goal is to bring together local Grand Junction residents with the Colorado Mesa University academic community, emphasizing issues of education, respect, and diversity. 

The Series is sponsored by CMU Civic Forum and the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences; all academic sessions are free and open to the public. The Bari Weiss panel discussion is free for CMU students, faculty and staff but tickets must be reserved in advance. Tickets for the general public are $10 and can be purchased at
