Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust
Wednesday, February 12, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
January 30th marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration and death camp. Fifteen years ago 1500 attended the memorial, this year only 200 were there. Most of those attending had either been imprisoned or had relatives there.
Many of those in attendance are worried that the world will forget about the six million Jews that were part of the Nazi genocide. The word “Holocaust” which literally means ‘burned whole’ has come to mean the ideological and systematic state-sponsored prosecution and mass murder of millions of European Jews, Gypsies, the intellectually disables, dissidents and homosexuals.
For over two decades Rabbi Hanoch Teller has been a sought-after tour guide at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. His Holocaust expertise, deep humanity and sensitivity, and his uncanny ability to tell just the right story at the right time, transform the infinite banality of horror into an intensely personal encounter with the Destruction of European Jewry.
