The National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill University will hold a reception and book signing in honor of the publication of its new title, “Women, the Holocaust and Genocide: The Ethel LeFrak Holocaust Education Conference Proceedings.” The event will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at 5 p.m. in the JoAnne Woodyard Boyle Health Sciences Center, Room 167. 

The book’s editor, Dr. Carol Rittner, R.S.M, will be on hand for a discussion and to sign copies of the publication, which will be available for sale that evening at a discounted rate of $10.
