Keynote Address: When accidental Holocaust scholar Danny M. Cohen, Ph.D. found himself in the shadows of what he calls hidden Holocaust histories, his perceptions of the Holocaust and of his family’s past led him to ask unexpected questions. Why do we continue to seek lessons from the Holocaust? And how do we process our emotions when learning about the Nazis’ atrocities? This leads us to the larger question, what does Holocaust history and memory mean today?

Danny is a learning scientist and writer. A distinguished professor of instruction at Northwestern University’s School of Education and Social Policy, Danny specializes in Holocaust memory and education design. He is the author of the choose-your-own-pathway mystery “The 19th Window” and the historical novel “Train,” a selected text of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Danny is the founder of Unsilence and is co-chair of the Illinois Holocaust and Genocide Commission. He is also a member of the folk-rock band They Won’t Win.

Co-chairs: Felicia Miller & Leo Kleiner

“We’re so far away from the events [the Holocaust], and they can feel so distant, and they can feel like they’re not relevant, but they’re more relevant than ever.”
