Every spring, Lynn University holds the Nuremberg Trials class and the GenZ Story Expression Workshop—which culminate in an event that has been treasured by students and the Boca Raton community for more than a decade. Both provide special opportunities for students to explore history with the people who survived it.
In 2013, Lynn partnered with NEXT GENERATIONS, a Boca Raton-based organization that strives to preserve the legacy of those who perished and honor those who survived the Holocaust, to expand the class to the GenZ Story Expression Workshop.
As part of the workshop, students hear from a survivor firsthand. Then, they spend six to eight weeks recreating the story through creative mediums such as art, poetry, music, film, theater, technology, blogs or social media.
Final projects are displayed at the Project Nuremberg Lawyers Luncheon at Temple Beth El in Boca Raton and at Lynn’s annual Celebration of the Arts, both events typically held in April and May.
