Tonight is our second program in our speaker series related to the Fighting the Fire of Hate exhibition from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Ronda Hassig* will be presenting, Third Reich/2010: Censorship Then and Now. The program starts at 6:30 at the George Meyn building and the exhibition will be open at the museum before her program begins.
*Ronda Hassig is a library media specialist at Harmony Middle School in Overland Park, Kansas. With degrees from Kansas University and Kansas State University she also has her national board certification. Hassig is part of the Midwest Center for Holocaust Studies Teaching Cadre. She has been to many of the concentration camps and two death camps and is an Alfred Lerner Fellow. Hassig was named a Kansas Master Teacher in 2008 and just this past month won her second national award from ALA (American Library Association) “The Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award for Exemplary Humanities Programming.” Finally, although she is still waiting for her first galley, her book “Caught in the Maelstrom” a story about William Quantrill’s Raid on Lawrence in August of 1863 will hopefully be published this year – Kansas’ 150th birthday!
