This is the first session of four in a class on the Holocaust taught by Amy Degen. Trained by the group Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) to teach the Holocaust to 9th grade students at Congregation Shalom, Amy Degen has been teaching adults and teens about the Holocaust since 2007. This summer she went to Poland and studied with FHAO and Poland’s Forum For Dialogue.
In this session the topic is bystanders. What is the Role of the Bystander and who were the Bystanders during World War II? We will learn about the Evian Conference, examine the Voyage of the St. Louis, and look at examples in Poland where bystanders were also perpetrators. What was the role of the U.S.? How did the U.S. help the Jews or not help the Jews?
RSVP is appreciated but not required. Don’t worry if you cannot attend all of the sessions. You are welcome to attend those you can.+ More... - Less...
