  • Kenneth Waltzer, professor of history in James Madison College and the former director of MSU’s Jewish Studies Program, served as the historian for the documentary “Kinderblock 66,” which focuses on the lives of four men who were imprisoned in the Buchenwald concentration camp during World War II. Based on much of his research, the United Nations and UN centers around the globe will host screenings of the film Tuesday-Wednesday in observance of International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. Waltzer can discuss the story of the four boys, and why the nation should take time this week to remember Holocaust victims.
