In 1985, the first annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Days of Remembrance) observance at Ball State University was organized by the now defunct campus ministry organization, United Ministries, under the leadership of Rev. Charles W. Shannon. Survivor Alexander Lande (d. 1993) was the first speaker during that inaugural occasion. In 1994, following Rev. Shannon’s move to Missouri, Richard Fears, Instructor in Religious Studies, became the head of the coordinating committee responsible for organizing the annual observance. Soon thereafter, campus observances came under the umbrella of the Jewish Studies Project, headed by Judy Koor and followed by David Kamens and Francine Friedman. Ecumenical in organization, Yom HaShoah observance events have been held at several locations on and off campus, including the Catholic Newman Center, the First Presbyterian Church, the College Avenue Methodist Church, and Temple Beth El. Along with services, guest speakers, films, concerts, and poster displays, observances have also created exhibits for display in Bracken Library.
