Join the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh for an evening of learning and conversation with leaders in the Bamileke and Holocaust Center Generations communities. We will learn about the Bamileke people’s experiences of persecution, explore the intersections between the two communities, and talk about the relationships that have been building between descendants of survivors of the Holocaust and the Bamileke genocides.

The Bamileke are a minority ethnic group in Cameroon who experienced a genocide from the late 1950s to early 1970s. The Holocaust Center Generations group is composed of children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors.

This event is part of the Elizabeth Sylvian Memorial Lecture Series and is also supported by the Opportunity Fund.
