[April 26, 2013]  ATLANTA -- On Monday, the Atlanta Public Library's Worldviews book group, which has been studying the Holocaust this year, will present a special evening with Michael Rothberg, founder and director of the Holocaust, Genocide and Memory Studies Initiative at the University of Illinois.

The program is free and is planned for 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the North Greens Golf Course in Atlanta. The event was rescheduled when a snowstorm forced cancellation of the original program on March 25.

Rothberg will discuss the importance of preserving memories of the Holocaust and answer questions about the role genocide continues to play in the world today.

A professor at the University of Illinois, Michael Rothberg is a well-known teacher and writer, and this program is a rare opportunity for members of the public to meet informally with an expert whose insights into one of the world's most significant events promise to be informative and thought-provoking.
