You might remember a recent appearance by Webster University professors on “St. Louis on the Air,” a popular weekday show on St. Louis NPR affiliate 90.7 KWMU-FM.

Their appearance was to discuss “Change Begins with Me: Confronting Hate, Discrimination & Ethnic Conflict,” an exhibit at the St. Louis Holocaust Museum & Learning Center that focuses on the many genocides and near-genocides that have occurred since the annihilation of 6 million Jews during World War II.

Under the supervision of Warren Rosenblum, associate professor of history, and Michael Hulsizer, professor of psychology and chair of the Department of Behavioral & Social Sciences, nine students served semester-long internships for the exhibit. Students researched countries that have had genocides or similar atrocities since World War II; museum officials then condensed and simplified their work so that it could be easily absorbed by visitors, the majority of whom are middle-school students.

Webster University’s role in the project stemmed from Rosenblum’s 10 years as a St. Louis Holocaust Museum & Learning Center consultant.
