The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was the genocide of
European Jews during World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi
Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered six million
Jews across German-occupied Europe, approximately two-thirds of
Europe’s Jewish population. This was, and continues to be, one of the
darkest periods in Jewish history.Jonathan Wiesen, Chair of the
University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of History, and
Esther Levy, whose mother, Toby Gerson, was a survivor, will share their knowledge with us.
