Holocaust and Genocide Education Resources

Holocaust Education Newsletter
Fall 2022 / 5783

Dear Friends,

As the anniversary of Kristallnacht approaches, we are reminded of the desperate effort of German and Austrian Jews to flee the violence and escalating persecution. Tragically our world continues to echo such anxiety, as countless refugees flee for safety from more violence, more wars. May we learn from the past, offering not only safety but, as tradition teaches us, true welcome.
