Paul Vincent speaks on immigration policy Feb. 7

On February 7 at 7:00 pm the Historical Society of Cheshire County will host a free talk by Professor Paul Vincent, former New Hampshire Humanities Board member and creator in 2008-09 of Keene State College’s Department of Holocaust and Genocide Studies, which he chaired until retirement in 2017. He served from 1998 to 2007 as director of the college’s Cohen Center for Holocaust Studies, was a Fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2007-08, and in 2015 taught as a visiting Fulbright Professor at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. His February 7 public talk on immigration came about due to teachers’ requests after his very well-received presentation at a professional development workshop funded by New Hampshire Humanities last spring. The event will be held at the Historical Society of Cheshire County, 246 Main Street, Keene. For more information email devdir@hsccnh.org.
