"Sonia was a courageous human being who taught the modern world to love and not to hate," said Dr. Marvin Wilson, professor of biblical studies at Gordon College. "There have been thousands of students affected by Sonia's story and her call to remember the past so people don't repeat it."
Sonia Weitz passed away on Wednesday, June 23, 2010. She spoke at Gordon College for 29 consecutive years, impacted thousands of students, and was a dear friend of Dr. Wilson and our college community. A video podcast of her 2008 visit to Gordon is available online.
