    Please join Fanny Starr and her daughter Helen aka Explorer Dastardly for a Holocaust Lecture Host: Lighthouse Learning Island, Virtual Pioneers and WNYRIC WHEN: Sunday April 26, 2009 TIME: 5:00 PM SLT WHERE: Lighthouse Learning Island Moderator: Orchid Jameson ******** Fanny Starr - Real Life Holocaust Survivor Fanny will lecture and share her answers to questions of what it was like in a concentration camp for six years...before it is to late. Emphasis on the worlwide rise in Anti-Sematic attitudes. Fanny and her late husband Zesa Starr have lectured on the Holocaust since the late 1960's. Fanny gave a lecture about her Holocaust experiences in SL last November 20, 2008, January 18, 2009 and again in March 01, 2009. Holocaust Lecture Felicia (Fanny) Granek was born on September 23, 1923, in the Lodz Ghetto of Poland. In 1939, at the age of 13, Felicia was interned through the legislative power of the racially discriminatory Nuremberg Laws. By the summer of 1944, she and her family were deported to the death camp at Auschwitz. Of the 285,000 Holocaust survivors, Fanny remains one of approximately 50,000 who still solemnly endure as historians for humanity. In her deeply moving lecture, Felicia Granek recalls her inheritance of loss and the sorrow as she bore witness to prejudice, destruction and death at Nazi hands. Chaperoning Fanny InWorld is her daughter Helen (aka Explorer Dastardly); who herself grew up in the light and shadows of that same fractured inheretance. " I am the next generation, who in turn will share and educate about the Holocaust and make sure it NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN. The Holocaust topic is in the press every day as of late. I have been working with my mom in learning how to lecture on the Holocaust, and we started a series of lectures in Second Life." Helen is currently pursuing her Bachelors degree in Virtual Technology and English Writing at Metropolitan State College, Denver. Helen shares her parent's passion for being involved in shining the light of education into the darkness of ignorance. "The best way to diffuse hatred is through education." Fanny's strength, profound love for life, and her enduring faith in human kindness will inspire you.

        Nashville bluesman Von Johin learned the art of Mississippi Delta-style blues the old fashioned way: by playing small venues across the country. But despite the traditional nature of his music, Von Johin plays weekly shows in Second Life, as you can see in the video to the right. His determination has paid off handsomely, with a record deal believed to be the first ever given to a Second Life performer. http://www.wired.com/listening_post/2008/08/second-life-blu/ http://www.vonjohin.com
