Enjoy a visual stroll through the launch party for the new book "No Resting Place: Holocaust Poland" (http://smu.edu/norestingplace), hosted Oct. 5, 2017, by SMU alums Trey Velvin '86 and Dee Velvin '87 in Dallas. Produced by SMU's Embrey Human Rights Program (EHRP), "No Resting Place" is a powerful reflection of the University's unique “Holocaust Poland” learning-abroad trip led for more than two decades by Prof. Rick Halperin the last two weeks of December (http://smu.edu/poland). In 2005, one trip-goer – philanthropist-SMU alumna Lauren Embrey ('80, '06) – would be so transformed by the immersive experience (and eye-opening human rights course) that she and her family foundation chose to fund SMU's ground-breaking Embrey Human Rights Program (http://smu.edu/humanrights). SMU is now one of only seven universities in the United States to offer an undergraduate degree in human rights – plus a Master of Liberal Studies and a minor in the field. The EHRP's innovative mix of humanitarian-focused curricula, study trips, public events and community-outreach initiatives have led thousands of people to become world-changers in a variety of professions – and embody the program's credo, "There is no such thing as a lesser person."
