“Human rights after the Holocaust: what have we learned?”

Thursday 25 February 2016, 17:30-21:00pm, Glasgow


The Holocaust Educational Trust is delighted to partner with the Law School and Law in Action to arrange a unique panel event: “Human rights after the Holocaust: what have we learned?”

On the 25th February, two Holocaust survivors, Henry and Ingrid Wuga, will come to the University to give their testimonies and participate in a question and answer session. This will be followed by a panel discussion with leading academics and practitioners in human rights and international law. We hope to reflect on the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust, particularly in the context of human rights issues today – such as the refugee crisis, hate crime and genocide.

The panel will consist of:

  • Ms. Amal Azzudin (Glasgow Girl)
  • Mr. Gary Christie (Scottish Refugee Council)
  • Ms. Carol Ewart (Scottish Human Rights Consortium)
  • Dr.Jacques Hartmann (University of Dundee)
  • Ms. Thérèse O’Donnell (University of Strathclyde)
  • Professor Ray Stokes (University of Glasgow)
  • Mr. Andrew Sirel (Legal Services Agency, University of Glasgow)
