Day seminar

The one day seminar puts emphasis on Jewish and non-Jewish resistance and the struggle to hold on to one's humanity despite the overwhelming dehumanization of the Jewish people, as well as other undesirables, during the Holocaust.  The seminar also explores the unique narrative of Holocaust survivors who chose to establish the Ghetto Fighters' kibbutz and museum in the new State of Israel.   As well, the seminar examines the life of Jewish children during the Holocaust in the only children's museum in the world that deals with this subject.  The testimony of a Holocaust survivor brings to this seminar the first hand perspective of the survivor and gives insight into the lives of European Jewry before, during and after World War II.
