Lectures on Comparing Animal Suffering and the Holocaust

Roberta Kalechofsky

Roberta Kalechofsky

On March 24 & 25, United Poultry Concerns will be holding their 7th Annual Conference, co-hosted by the NYU Student Animal League Defense Fund and Lantern Books. The conference’s theme is “Inadmissable Comparisons”: the propriety of equating animal suffering with human suffering during African American slavery, Native American genocide and the Holocaust. Speaker Roberta Kalechofsky, Ph.D., author of Animal Suffering and the Holocaust: The Problem With Comparisons, has been an outspoken critic of PETA’s “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign (for which PETA has offered an apology); some of the other presenters, such as Charles Patterson, author of Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust, and Karen Davis, author of The Holocaust and the Henmaid’s Tale: A Case for Comparing Atrocities, take the opposite stance. The conference will take place at NYU’s Law School at Vanderbilt Hall at 40 Washington Square South, Room 210. Registration is $75 for non-students, $60 for students and free to NYU students and faculty if you register by March 15.
