General Meeting / Discussion Group

April 18, 2005  After everyone introduced themselves and shared a little of their family history, we discussed the following:

  • Yom Hashoah and our past participation. There were also announcements of upcoming commemoration events.
  • Holocaust Denial, which included a reading of Deborah Lipstadt's letter to the Times about C-SPAN's coverage of her book "History on Trial". We talked about deniers, delegitimizers and their motivations.
  • What's the meaning of 3G Activism? We did try to define what activism would mean to this group. Is it enough to meet once a month and talk about issues or should our goals be more broad? There was a consensus not to rush into group activism until we have a well-defined purpose and message.
