South China Courage Conference

04-25-2017

How Do We Find Courage
and Inspiration When It’s Difficult?

During a time when many ports were closed to Jewish people escaping the horrors of the Holocaust, Shanghai and the people of China offered a safe harbor for over 30,000 Jewish refugees. That kindness was further extended during the period of the Shanghai Ghetto, as well as after the war when many Jews sought to start new lives. The generosity of the Chinese people cannot be forgotten and is a lesson in the importance of peace and finding the courage and inspiration to make a difference.

The International School of Dongguan, HERE! Magazine and Treasures of Hope wish to invite students and educators to register and attend The South China Courage Conference: Finding Inspiration to Make a Difference on May 26-May 27, 2017. The Keynote speaker for the event is author of the book titled: ‘I’m No Hero: Journeys of a Holocaust Survivor.’ Born in Brody, Poland in 1928, Henry Friedman will share his story of survival during the Holocaust. Henry, his mother, his younger brother and their teacher lived in hiding for 18 months. Having the courage to teach others the importance of peace, Mr. Friedman is also a member of the Speakers Bureau of the Holocaust Center for Humanity in Seattle, Washington.

On Friday, May 26/2017, the conference will be open to Grades 8-12 students of South China to be held at The International School of Dongguan from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition to the Keynote Speaker, students will attend a series of workshops on various topics of courage and offering humanitarian aid.

Saturday, May 27/2017, is a Gala and dinner event to be held at the Tangla Dongguan Hotel. The evening Keynote speaker will be Mr. Henry Friedman, in addition to four guest speakers.

The International School of Dongguan, HERE! Magazine and Treasures of Hope wish to invite you to an educational experience about finding courage and inspiration to make a difference.
