The Holocaust: Remembrance and Warning Conference

In 2010, Genesis Philanthropy Group supported the 10th high school student conference, titled "The Holocaust: Remembrance and Warning," which took place in Brest, Belarus, and was organized by the Holocaust Research and Education Center. Conference participants – from Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus – had previously won local competitions for projects dedicated to studying the Shoah.

In 2010, the conference was re-organized to expand the audience to university students and professors, thus bringing together several generations of young researchers. Conference proceedings were subsequently published.

Students' projects were supported by Genesis Philanthropy Group, the European Jewish Fund, the Joint Distribution Committee, the Russian Jewish Congress, the Conference of European Rabbis, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and other organizations.
