What we can learn from the Holocaust: A Muslim Perspective
|Venue:||FIU Modesto A. Maidique Campus SIPA 103|
Join the Muslim World Studies Program as it presents Dr. Mehnaz Afridi's talk on Muslim thoughts and perspectives on what can be learned from the Holocaust.
Dr. Mehnaz Afridi is deeply invested in interfaith work, both in her scholarship and work as Director of the Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center. Her scholarship puts into question the problems of religious bias, competition and identity. Dr. Afridi focuses on keeping the memory of Holocaust survivors alive. In her lecture, she is going to speak about the contemporary Muslim perspective on genocide and the holocaust. In a world that thrives on conflict and prejudice, truth and reason are often the first victims. Dr Afridi is working hard to prevent that by educating the public on less known Muslim perspectives on the Jewish Holocaust.
