Presented by: The Center for Mediation and Conflict Management  and The Conflict Resolution Society

We are all challenged through trials of many kinds.  Come hear these inspiring stories of survival and silver linings. 

Max Glauben will share his amazing story of survival and triumph as he was sent from camp to camp during the Holocaust.  He will remind us and inspire us that good things can spring from tragedy.  Bernard Nguyen survived torture in VietNam to become a global peacemaker and educator.  He continues to share an amazing understanding of peace with all who meet him.



Max is a Holocaust survivor and frequent lecturer at the Dallas Holocaust Museum & Center for Education and Tolerance. Bernard is the founder of PAXific Dispute Resolution Center in Dallas. Max and Bernard will discuss their lives of peace in two of the most dangerous areas of the world where they have personally witnessed genocide and mass murder.  They will share how they have responded to conflict. The panel will be facilitated by Adam McGough and Gene Roberts.
