Introduction To The Holocaust

June 23, 2021 $0.00 - $180.00

Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage for an adult education course offering an introduction to the Holocaust.  Each class will include a full lecture followed by student Q&A.

The first four sessions will be led by Dr. Natalia Aleksiun, Professor of Modern Jewish History at the Graduate School of Jewish Studies at Touro College New York. Her scholarship has focused on East European Jewish history, especially Polish Jewish history during and after the Holocaust, women’s history, and Jewish historiography. Dr. Aleksiun’s work has been published in Yad Vashem Studies, East European Jewish Affairs, and elsewhere.

The fifth session will feature Alice Ginsburg, a Holocaust survivor from Mukachevo, Czechoslovakia (now Ukraine). Ginsburg survived Auschwitz and a death march before she was liberated in 1945 and emigrated to the United States in 1947. She will share her story of loss and survival.

Registration is for the full series. Classes cannot be purchased individually.

All registrants will receive access to a recording of the classes. Space is limited.
