The experiences of the Jews during the Holocaust in Germany and occupied Poland are fairly well known. But what about the experiences of Jews who fled to distant lands? Join us we explore two amazing case studies from that time. Professor Atina Grossman will present “Trauma, Privilege, and Adventure in Transit: German Jewish Refugees in Iran.” Then, Professor Mort Soroka will speak on “A Mirrer in Manila: A Mir Yeshivah Student’s Amazing Story of Escape and Survival.” This seminar is one in a series that will explore the far reach of the Holocaust.
Shoah Teaching Alternatives for Jewish Educators (STAJE) at the Museum of Jewish of Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is a professional development program for teachers in Jewish schools that is offered at no charge. Advance registration is required.
