The Schemel Forum World Affairs Luncheon Seminar - The Courage to Care

Monday, 13 March, 2023

People who helped Jews during the Nazi era, WWII, and the Holocaust (1933-1945) were a small minority of the predominanly Christian population in Europe. Why did some non-Jews - most of them baptized Christians - risk their lives to help Jews when so many others did not? What was it that moved such people from being passive bystanders to becoming active helpers of Jews during the Holocaust? What, if anything, can we learn from people who had "the courage to care" about what was happening to Jews during the Holocaust? 

Dr. Carol Rittner, RSM, Distinguished Professor Emerita of Holocaust & Genocide Studies and Dr. Marsha Raticoff Grossman Professor Emerita of Holocaust Studies at Stockton University in New Jersey
