Non-Jewish rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust have been acknowledged and celebrated for years, but scholars are only now starting to write about the heroic efforts of European Jews to rescue themselves and their brethren during the Holocaust. Their activities ranged from smuggling people across borders, to negotiating with Himmler, to sailing boatloads of Jews down the Danube River. Join us as we explore the efforts of outstanding individual Jews and Jewish organizations to aid and save Jews in Nazi occupied areas.
The program is free of charge, however space is limited and pre-registration is required. To pre-register or for more information, please contact Dr. Paul Radensky at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (646) 437-4310. A light lunch for teachers will be available at 11:30 a.m. (dietary laws observed).
Our professional development programs are made possible through the generous support of The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany: The Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education.
