Join us for a powerful evening of remembrance and support! 

At Bristol Community College’s Holocaust and Genocide Center, we are dedicated to educating and raising awareness about the atrocities of the past to ensure they are never forgotten. We invite you to be a part of our mission by attending this year’s fundraising event, "A Staged Reading: The Cancelled Sky," written by Dr. Alex Page, a Holocaust survivor. This gripping staged reading, performed in partnership with Bristol’s Theatre Program, will shed light on the Holocaust through the imagined experiences of the playwright’s family members taking their last train ride to Auschwitz, in 1944.
