Holocaust in Jewish History

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

Watch the recording of this session here:

 

Every Jew understands that the Holocaust was a formative event in 20th-century Jewish History, in the history of 20th-century humanity, with implications that carry well into the 21st century. Yet, many questions can be asked about the place of the Holocaust in Jewish History.

• Is the Holocaust Jewish History or German History?
• Is it the aberration of the Jewish experience in the diaspora? In exile? Or is it, its ultimate expression?
• What is its impact as a formative event…? On the content of Jewish faith? On Jewish relations with the non-Jewish world? On the establishment of the State of Israel? Where, if anywhere, is consolation to be found? And should we only consider how Jews were killed or also how they lived?

Join us for a lecture that will seek to place the Holocaust in the context of Jewish History. We will address these questions, and several more while being mindful of our unique moment in history – standing in the presence of the last survivors, yet a distance of 76 years from the event – at the moment of transition between lived history and historical memory.
