Lunch & Learn: Extraordinary Lessons for Holocaust Education: Resistance and Rescue in World War II

Event date: 
Wednesday, July 24, 2019 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Can bravery be taught? Can moral courage be embraced as a core value in our society today? Explore with Dr. Racelle Weiman, the characteristics, behavior and actions of individuals and groups who made choices to stand up and against evil, prejudice and genocide. Who were these people, and what made them respond differently than the mainstream? Dr. Weiman leads a fascinating discussion on her decades long study of this topic that expands beyond altruism, to the core identity of an individual, and the soul of society. Stories and highlights from her research of acts of daring heroism and sheer audacious rescues in Nazi occupied Europe will generously pepper this amazing presentation.

This presentation is part of the 2019 Martin & Doris Rosen Summer Symposium on “Education During and After the Holocaust” by ASU's Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies. For more information, please visit the Symposium website at https://holocaust.appstate.edu/symposium.
