Wednesday 3 July
In this Lunchtime Lecture, rabbi, senior docent at Yad Vashem and award-winning author Hanoch Teller will discuss the misinterpretation in Germany and abroad of the catastophe of the Holocaust.
In hindsight, the writing was on the wall in bold, unmistakable letters.
What was happening in Germany and abroad, that caused such a colossal failure to read what was coming? For reasons that are now finally understood, the prelude of 1938-9 was catastrophically misinterpreted. But once the truth was out and in the open, why did governments, particularly the US and Britain, do everything to obstruct rescue efforts?
These are the Book Ends of the Holocaust.
Hanoch Teller is the author of the book Heroic Children: Stories of the Unconquerable, which follows the stories of nine survivors who were only children when they encountered the unimaginable turbulence and horrors of the Holocaust.
