Phenomenal Holocaust collection at CU

Phenomenal Holocaust collection at CU

PASSOVER EDITION 5775
SECTION B PAGE 8

BOULDER — The yellowing document is crumbling and fading, but the smooth signature on its cover is as legible as it is chilling: Rudolf Hess, the Nazi who served as a Hitler deputy from 1933 to 1941.

The signature, which adorns a 70-year-old leniency plea for top Nazi Hermann Goering during the postwar Nuremberg trials, is one of some 500,000 discrete items and 20,000 books donated last year to the University of Colorado at Boulder — nearly the entirety of one of the world’s largest privately owned Holocaust collections.

It’s as quiet as a room full of adolescents can be; every face facing the stage, on which there is one man, talking. No music. No screens. Nothing to click on or link to. Just a guy talking and a lo...

Anti-circumcision movement comes to Boulder

UNLIKE the group that created the 2011 San Francisco ballot initiative that would have made circumcising a male under age 18 a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of $1,000 or up to one year in jail, with no religious exemptions permitted, those gathered at CU Boulder July 23-26 for the 13th convocation of the International Symposium on Genital Autonomy and Children’s Rights indicated an interest in education over legislation. “Whole Bodies, Whole Selves: Activating Social Change” brought t...
