The Muhlenberg College Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding will sponsor its annual Youth and Prejudice Conference on Tuesday, November 27 and Wednesday, November 28.

More than 700 middle school students will attend the conference on Muhlenberg's campus in Allentown. Participants will view The Lost Children of Berlin, a Shoach Foundation film, and then discuss the film in small groups with Holocaust survivors or second-generation survivors. Muhlenberg faculty and community members will facilitate the discussions, and Muhlenberg students will guide the students to their sessions and lead small-group discussions.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley.
