World Without Genocide will host a webinar on Thursday, April 20, 2023, 7:00-9:00 pm CT on Zoom to explore the use of political cartoons during the Holocaust and in today’s war in Ukraine. Political cartoons give hard-hitting social commentary on critical events to influence action.

The two speakers will share images of the cartoons and will discuss cartooning in today’s context.
