Zoom

In this virtual webinar sponsored by the Alabama Holocaust Education Cetner, Yad Vashem's Sheryl Ochayon will discuss how during the Holocaust, many people looked the other way, others remained passive and far too many abandoned the victims to their fate. As Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel said, “To remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all.” In this talk, Sheryl Ochayon of Yad Vashem will discuss the twin dangers of silence and indifference, especially as related to the increase in antisemitism after October 7, 2023.
