"Feature Story" piece on the Holocaust, and how the discussion is being framed o
"Feature Story" piece on the Holocaust, and how the discussion is being framed on two Maine campuses: the University of Maine in Orono, and Bates College in Lewiston. Ads that appeared in the student newspapers at both campuses last year question the writings of author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, and by association, the entire history of the Holocaust. The ads provoked a small but intense storm of protest and argument, including issues of First Amendment rights and obligations, racism, anti-Semitism and historic revisionism, student responsibility for university newspaper policy and content, and the role of faculty advisers. Today the debate will re-open under the auspices of the Socialist and Marxist Luncheon Series at the University of Maine in Orono.
