Thanks to a donation from the Cogan Family Fund, PCPH is pleased to announce the Holocaust and Genocide Studies (HGS) Project. The HGS Project is dedicated to raising public awareness through lectures, workshops and other events that examine the Holocaust and other forms of genocide in a comparative global context (read more).

Nathan Cogan, Professor Emeritus of English, who taught literature of the Holocaust for 17 years at Portland State University, established this project via a five-year seed fund gift to PCPH to create a lecture series. 

The HGS Project is pleased to announce its inaugural event, a film screening and panel discussion of The "OH" Project, An Oral History: Healing from the Cambodian Genocide. The "OH" Project is an award-winning and moving documentary about the experiences of survivors of the Cambodian genocide of 1975-79.  The film features intergenerational interviews of survivors by their children and grandchildren, all now living in the state of Oregon.

This event is free and open to the public. It is presented in collaboration with the Cambodian-American Community of Oregon and co-sponsored by the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center and the Department of English at PSU. 

Refreshments will be served.
