Brought to you by Jewish Studies at Queens University.

No event in modern history highlights more effectively the dangers of indifference in the face of hatred and discrimination than the Holocaust. Through the use of film shorts, documentaries, library testimonies, poetry, and research, students will develop a deeper understanding of the factors that led to the Holocaust and can lead to genocide - political, economic, historical, and religious (including the history of anti-Semitism). Sessions include:  the mind of the perpetrator * the mind of the bystander:  indifference and apathy * life in the ghetto * spiritual & physical resistance * rescue & righteous gentiles * the final solution * the soul of the Holocaust * liberators, survivors & the return to life * truth, justice, reconciliation, & reparations * Holocaust denial * human rights & social justice.  Rabbi Judy Schindler, Sklut Professor of Jewish Studies, will teach the 12 classes.
