Lesson Two: The Voice of Your Brother's Blood Cries Out

Over eleven million people died in World War II, and there other groups besides the Jews who were singled out by the Nazis as a target of annihilation. By speaking of the war against the Jews, do we lose an opportunity to connect with others who have suffered?

This lesson weighs the importance of hearing a distinctly Jewish voice when discussing the Holocaust, and points out the importance of recognizing what is distinct about the Jewish experience, even while realizing that there are other stories to be told about the war as well.

Join us this week for Lesson Two of Beyond Never Again, in which we will explore the ability to attain universality while viewing the Holocaust through a particular Jewish prism.

Looking forward to seeing you for Lesson Two.
