Information

“Doctors and Nurses as Rescuers in Humanitarian Crises,” a traveling exhibit produced by the UNI Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education (CHGE), will open at Allen College on Thursday, September 14. The exhibit profiles doctors, nurses and small teams who used their medical training and skills to perform rescue on behalf of large numbers of people threatened by humanitarian crisis, usually in the context of armed conflict. The exhibit spans the late 19th century up to the present, in countries on four different continents.

Also on September 14, Allen College will host a reception in McBride Auditorium that will be open to the public. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with a short presentation at 7 p.m. by Dr. Stephen J. Gaies, Director of the CHGE and creator of the exhibit. Light refreshments will be served, and attendees will have time to view the exhibit. The exhibit will remain on display until mid-November. This exhibit has been made possible through a gift in the name of Drs. Melville and Judith Finkelstein of Cedar Falls, Iowa.
