Southern California: Remembering the victims, Oct. 5

Professor Dan Brown will examine his work with Stephen Spielberg's "Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Project" and the memorials to the memory of those slaughtered by the Nazis during World War II, at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV).

Brown will also address the need to educate today's youth to the dangers of hate groups and their inclination to use violence against innocent people.
