The JoAnne Boyle World Affairs Forum at Seton Hill University will present guest lecturer Dr. Alex Grobman on Wednesday, November 7, 2007, at 7:00 p.m. in Lynch Lecture Hall on Seton Hill’s Greensburg, Pa. campus. The forum is free and open to the public.

“The Forum is using this lecture by Dr. Grobman, who will discuss the Holocaust as the backdrop for his presentation, to challenge all of us to become active participants in our personal, local, and extended communities to become rescuers of those in need,” said Dr. Frank Klapak, Seton Hill professor of communication and education.

Dr. Alex Grobman is president of the Brenn Institute, a think-tank dealing with historical and contemporary issues affecting the Jewish community. Dr. Grobman founded the first Holocaust center in the U.S. in St. Louis. He also served as director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Grobman will speak on “Those Who Dared: Rescuers and Rescued.”

The JoAnne Boyle World Affairs Forum was named by the University faculty and is dedicated to Seton Hill University President JoAnne Boyle, who consistently encourages every member of the academic community to be an informed global citizen. The forum series brings speakers and artists to Westmoreland County to address global issues. The National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill is a co-sponsor of this event.
