Vancouver, BC V5Z3G9


As a teenager in Buchenwald, Robbie Waisman experienced what no one should have to experience. In addition to many years working in Holocaust education, Robbie has found opportunities to work with members of other ethnic groups, helping them address traumatic events in their personal and community history. In this talk, Robbie will share reflections on his work with local First Nations during the recent Year of Reconciliation.
