Please note: This event is only for teachers in Jewish schools.

The Eichmann trial was a watershed event which changed the way the Holocaust and Holocaust survivors were perceived. Yitzchak Mais and other scholars will examine how the trial, which was one of the first to be televised, generated sympathy for and identification with the survivors. At the same time, political scientist Hannah Arendt raised disturbing questions about the perpetrators and the role of the victims. Join us as we explore these fascinating issues.

This program is free and lunch will be provided to teachers (dietary laws observed), but preregistration is required by October 22. Please click here to register.
