Professor Thorsten Wagner, Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE), will lecture on the incredible rescue of Danish Jews during World War II. Teachers will also hear testimony from a Holocaust survivor. After the conclusion of the program, teachers are invited to a complimentary audio tour of the exhibition Auschwitz. Not long ago.
