L'dor Vador: Holocaust Legacies & Lessons
with Heather Lutz

Feb. 2 | 7 p.m. (OL)

During this three-part adult series, we will explore facets of the Holocaust that range from historical studies and literary analyses to contemporary implications and personal connections. While the individual topics of our classes can vary according to the thought-provoking discussions and inquiries raised from session to session, some central topics include but are not limited to: contemplating and challenging of our understanding of perpetrators, victims, and rescuers in the context of the Holocaust; reading and unpacking of Elie Wiesel’s incredible short story, The Watch, and an exploration of the expansive, emotive, and empathetic power of artifacts to humanize and narrate history; studying the roots of anti-Semitism and their rise and reverberations in current society. The nature of these sessions will be communal, collaborative, interactive, and reflective so we can learn with and from each other.
