By 1942 there was no escape from Europe for the Jews, and even if they had managed to run – who would take them in? This second episode on the Holocaust explores the message of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and finally brings American Jewry into the picture of the Jewish Story.
Antony Lishak via his organization ‘Learning from the Righteous’ will be commemorating Irena Sendler throughout 2018. He spoke to Eve at Limmud UK where he presented a session on this non Jewish woman who coordinated the rescue of hundreds of Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto during the Holocaust at great risk to herself and others in the Resistance. What lessons can be learned from her altruism; what terrible choices were made by parents, to physically save their children but know they would be lost to their faith. Without historical context no one should judge, and may this episode in history never repeat itself.
