Race Science & All That Jazz

CMA co-curated an event for Holocaust Memorial Day, 2021 on behalf of South Hampstead Synagogue. We began with South Hampstead Synagogue’s commemoration ceremony, linked to the  HMD theme, Be the Light in the Darkness. Working together with the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, we then held a panel discussion hosted by Dr James Smith, CEO of the National Holocaust Museum. He interviewed 8 stellar guests to explore how theories of Race Science and eugenics helped to cause three of the 20th Century’s genocides. Caroline then shared details about our free remote schools programme for primary and secondary schools, to commemorate this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day theme. Find out more about our speakers and watch the event here.
