18th Annual Day of Learning
Sunday, March 8, 2020

Galileo Academy of Science and Technology, San Francisco

12:30 – 5:00pm


Students (grades 7-12) and educators are invited to our 18th Annual Day of Learning on March 8, 2020.

More than 700 students (grades 7-12) and educators from public and private schools throughout California will choose from 18 different workshops and hear survivor testimony from the Holocaust or genocide.  The Day of Learning is a special opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide. Lessons from world-renowned faculty and survivors of the Holocaust and modern genocide will inspire moral courage and social responsibility.

This year’s theme is Resistance through Art, and the program will feature performances by the Violins of Hope with Kay Stern and Emil Miland, members of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, and the Atlas String Quartet of the Young Chamber Musicians.  

The Violins of Hope San Francisco Bay Area is presented in association with Music at Kohl Mansion.
