Reena #HEW2016 Event is November 3

Reena has been chosen as a host site for Holocaust Education Week (#HEW2016).

Join us at Reena Community Residence (49 Lebovic Campus Drive) on November 3, 2016 at 7:00 pm for a presentation on: Aktion T4 – the Nazi “Euthanasia” Program.

This interactive session teaches how a government used the medical establishment, bolstered by propaganda and legislation, to convince its population that some people were “unworthy of living.” It will link memories of the past with current experiences and atrocities. Framed as a euthanasia program, Aktion T4 was a Nazi initiative that identified and exterminated people with mental, physical and developmental disabilities at killing centres, which were a precursor to the death camps.

WHEN:             November 3rd, 7:00 pm
WHERE:           Reena Community Residence (49 Lebovic Campus Drive, Vaughan)
